THGImage4April 15th, 2017, marked the 105th anniversary of when the great ship, the RMS Titanic sank into the very bottom of the North Atlantic. The ship was traveling from Southampton, England, to New York City, and the ship had been celebrated as being the safest ship in the world and had been deemed unsinkable.  There had been news reports about the ship, and the public was very envious of those lucky men and women who were able to get onto the boat.  The Titanic was watched closely from the moment the keel was laid in Belfast, to her launching in May of 1911, to her maiden voyage that took place on April 10th, 1912 from England.  The White Star Line office reported that it would take as much as a week for the ship to cross the North Atlantic. However, it was J. Bruce Ismay, the chairman of the White Star Line, who was on the ship for the crossing, that insisted that the Titanic would not take that long, and that the voyage would make headlines. Little did Ismay know just how right he was, but the headlines the ship would make would be the worst ever, and it would end up costing people their lives. Now, 105 years later, people are going to be offered the chance to see the Titanic as she sits on the bottom of the ocean. However, with an over $149 thousand dollar price tag, would people be willing to pay such a huge fee for something special, but also extremely dangerous?  [click to continue…]

amazingtitanicpics15Today is a very important day, not only for humanity, but for those that have made the RMS Titanic a passion in their lives.  Exactly 105 years ago, on April 15th, 1912, the beatufiul ship the RMS Titanic sank into the waters of the North Atlantic. The RMS Titanic had only been sailing for four days, it was her first time out to sea, and the world was right there when she slowly left Southampton Harbor, heading for her first destination, which was in France. After France, Titanic had to make a quick trip to Ireland, but then it was just open water on their way to New York City. However, the ship never made it to New York City because on the night of April 14th, 1912, while driving full speed through and ice-field sea, the ship struck an iceberg. There were over 2228 people on board, but by the time the night was done, only 705 people would be alive to tell a harrowing tale once they reached New York City.  Since today is the 105th anniversary of the Titanic sinking, the Titanic Belfast museum has put together a special video, and the link will be provided at the end of the post.

Robert BallardOn September 1st, 1985, something very important happened that literally changed the world. A man named Bob Ballard, in a ship that was exploring the ocean, found a long lost ship that the world had forgotten about.  Dr. Robert Ballard found a ship that he had dreams of finding for a long time, and it was the RMS Titanic. With the help of the US Navy, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Ballard used a submersible sub, and he was able to not only take photos of the long lost ship, but was actually able to go down to explore the Titanic up close. However, what Bob Ballard did was extremely rare, but now, almost 32 years later, what Ballard was able to do may be available to the general public. [click to continue…]

Titaniccolor6Some pictures are worth a thousand words, but there are some that are worth even more. There have been many pictures in history  that have told a story of either unbelievable triumph or unimaginable tragedy.  When the RMS Titanic sank in 1912, it was considered, and still is, one of the worst things that has ever happened in the history of mankind. The ship was on her maiden voyage, and there were over 2200 people on board her. On the night of April 14th, 1912, the ship had hit an iceberg and had sunk in less than three hours. For months before the ship sailed from Southampton, England, there were very few pictures taken of her once she had been completed.  In the previous post, the colorized images were of the Titanic in color during her construction, but now here are the images of this beautiful ship that were taken of her interior, and then beatufiul color was added to them.

Titaniccolor8Back in 1912, when the RMS Titanic sank, the world of photography was in its infancy, and there was no such thing as colored pictures. There were images of the Titanic, but the pictures that were taken of this amazing ship were taken with black and white film. When the tragedy struck, and the ship sank, there were pictures all around the world of what had happened and the ship itself. For the past 105 years, any image of the RMS Titanic that is shown on the television, has been in black white. However, now, someone with the technology has finally decided to colorize the images of the ship, and the results are absolutely stunning and bring the ship back to life like never before.
