Are you still going to Halifax? Take pictures please!            

Yes! I will definitely be going to Halifax! Unfortunately, it will not be on the anniversary this year like I planned, but it will happen. I’m actually doing two Titanic tours in NYC on April 13th & 14th and I’ll be reviewing those tours and taking plenty of pictures of that! Unfortunately I’m not sure if the Halifax museum itself allows pictures (as we all know I’ve been having an issue with museums and that policy lately), but the graveyards I will definitely capture. 

Billionaire Unveils New "Titanic II →

NEW YORK — Australian billionaire Clive Palmer unveiled plans Tuesday for construction of Titanic II, a cruise ship designed as a “full-scale re-creation” of the Titanic, which sank in the Atlantic Ocean in April 1912.

Displaying a blueprint for the Titanic II at a press conference aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Palmer announced that the ship will be built in China and begin carrying passengers in the third quarter of 2016.

Palmer, who refused to divulge the cost of building the ship, said “the Titanic was a ship of dreams,” and “the Titanic II will be the ship where dreams come true.”

The Australian businessman, who owns an Australian mining company and other businesses, said he has received an overwhelming response from prospective passengers who want to travel on Titanic II. He predicted that it “will be a real financial bonanza” so successful that he will “have to build Titanic III.”

Some Titanic and cruise-ship experts doubt the Titanic II, which Palmer says will regularly sail across the North Atlantic, will be able to attract enough passengers after its maiden voyage. Some also question whether the new cruise ship desecrates the memory of those who died on the Titanic.

The Titanic II will be built 883 feet long – 3 inches longer than the original Titanic– and weigh 55,800 gross tons, according to Palmer. It will carry a maximum of 2,435 passengers and 900 crew members, and include a gymnasium, Turkish baths, a squash court, a swimming pool, a theater and a casino.

Its first voyage is scheduled to be from Shanghai to Southampton, England, and then on to New York.

The Titanic — the largest and most luxurious cruise ship of its time — departed from Southampton on its maiden voyage to New York in 1912 and made two stops in Europe before striking an iceberg several hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. More than 1,500 people aboard died after the collision.

The Titanic II, which will be built by a state-owned Chinese company, CSC Jinling Shipyard, will honor the memories of those who died and survived on the Titanic, Palmer said. The Titanic was operated by the White Star Line, and Palmer’s cruise company is called Blue Star Line.

Like the original ship, there will no TVs aboard and probably no Internet service, he says.The press conference was held on an aircraft carrier in the Hudson River near where the Titanic was expected to dock in 1912 and next to another ill-fated form of transport, the supersonic Concorde.

Timing of the announcement for the unveiling of Titanic II wasn’t smooth.

Palmer originally scheduled the unveiling of his plans at six kick-off events in December, but they were postponed because of the “devastation caused in New York and along the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy,” which struck last October.

This month, the cruise ship industry received a black eye after a fire broke out on the Carnival Triumph, knocking out power and causing five days of hardship for 4,200 passengers until the ship was towed to shore.

Michael Driscoll, the editor of the industry newsletter Cruise Week, is skeptical about the future of Titanic II in the aftermath of the Carnival Triumph fire and last year’s shipwreck of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Tuscany. The Costa Concordia slammed into a jagged reef and capsized, and 32 people were killed.

"Given all the safety concerns the industry has faced over the past 14 months — especially with Costa Concordia — such a ship would appear to have very limited appeal in this era," Driscoll says. "Themed cruises in general and even one-off re-creations of Titanic sailings in particular have proven popular in this business, but those thrive because they are done infrequently, not on a year-round basis."

Driscoll says he’s been told by travel agents that Titanic II will have “very limited viability with the North American market.”

Bad weather and big waves pose problems for trans-Atlantic sailings in winter, and the Titanic II “would appear to have no appeal” in regions with warmer weather, he says.”Titanic II is a curiosity and may have a draw as a floating hotel, but the idea of spending close to a week at sea on a vessel built around such a thin premise is seen as a stretch, at least by many within the industry,” Driscoll says.

Titanic expert J. Joseph Edgette, professor emeritus of education at Widener University in Chester, Pa., questions whether cruise ship passengers will continue to book Titanic II “once the initial hype is over.”

He says the Titanic’s primary purposes were to carry mail and cargo across the Atlantic, and it was a means of transportation for European and American passengers. In contrast, Titanic II will solely be a cruise ship, he says.

Edgette, who is also folklorist emeritus at Widener, says a cruise ship named Titanic II is “a little tacky,” and there is a maritime tradition of not naming a ship after one lost at sea.

Some people may not want to travel on it because of the tragedy suffered by its predecessor or a belief it would be disrespectful to those who died on the original ship, Edgette says.

Brad Matsen, author of Titanic’s Last Secrets, says “some people” like Palmer “have too much money.”

There was “an immense amount of hubris in the construction of the Titanic,” and that may be the case in the building of Titanic II, he says.

Matsen says the story of the Titanic still holds the “public’s fascination,” but he doesn’t know why anyone would name a ship after it.

"There were a lot of people who died on the Titanic," Matsen says. "That’s what gets lost on this."

Helen Benziger, the great-granddaughter of Molly Brown, who survived the Titanic sinking, says she is “thrilled” that the Titanic II is being built.

Benziger said at the press conference that Palmer “has assured me that everything possible has been done to honor the passengers who perished and the passengers who survived.”

Paul Kurzman, whose great-grandparents, Isidor and Ida Straus, died on the Titanic, says he has “no problem” with the construction of Titanic II. Isidor served in Congress and owned R.H. Macy & Co..

He says he thinks his grandparents would also not have felt offended.

"I don’t think they would have had any problem whatsoever, as long as the Titanic II steers clear of icebergs," says Kurzman, a professor of social work at Hunter College in New York.Karen Kamuda, vice president of The Titanic Historical Society in Indian Orchard, Mass., says a new cruise ship modeled after the original Titanic is a positive development.

"The Titanic was a piece of history and a symbol of an era," Kamuda says. "As we get farther away from that time, people want to feel that part of history."

Kamuda says it’s not insensitive to build a ship today modeled after one involved in a tragedy.

"I’m glad people are interested in history," she says. "If a symbol like this makes people reflect on an era that’s past, I don’t have a problem with that."

Julie Hedgepeth Williams, whose great uncle, Albert Caldwell, survived the Titanic sinking, says she often spoke with Albert about the tragedy. She is author of A Rare Titanic Family.

She says Albert, who died in 1992, would have wanted to travel on the Titanic II.

"He would have loved to have seen it," says Williams, a professor of journalism at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala. "He would have found a new ship intriguing. He always wanted to see the Titanic again."


Water-stained violin proven to be the one that played Nearer my God to Thee by Wallace Hartley as the Titanic sank is found. [x]

It is the instrument that he played as the ship went down in the Atlantic, and that he later used as a buoyancy aid once Titanic went down.

The violin was discovered only by chance when the son of an amateur musician found it in his attic. It was given to his mother by her violin teacher and was left gathering dust.

The discovery was almost too good to be true, prompting experts to have the relic forensically examined by some of the most revered scientific bodies in Britain.

Now, after seven years of testing at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds, the water-stained violin has been proven to be the one played by Hartley on the night of the tragedy.

These pictures show how incredibly well-preserved the rose wood violin is despite its age and it being exposed to the sea for 10 days after the sinking.

There are two long cracks on its body that are said to have been opened up by moisture damage.

The photos also show the corroded engraved silver plate screwed onto the base of the fiddle that provided scientists with they key proof of its authenticity.

The historic violin, said to be worth a six figure sum, will go on public display at the Belfast City Hall, where Titanic was built, at the end of March.

Negotiations are also under way to exhibit it in museums around the world including America. It is likely to be auctioned off in the future.

Titanic experts have described it as the most important artefact associated with the infamous liner to have come to light.

Here’s a colorization I did last year of RMS.Titanic in Southampton. This is the photo edit I am most proud of.


The Aft Grand Staircase on Olympic. Titanic’s would have been almost identical, except on Titanic the lower level in this photo (B Deck) was a more open, white-paneled reception room for the A la Carte Restaurant. This room would later be added on Olympic in a different configuration, but in this photo you only see a corridor in the background.

Renders of the First Class Enquiry and Purser’s Office aboard the Titanic. This area is currently being placed in-game, and it will serve as an important area in Titanic: Honor and Glory’s story.

  • Images 1-2: Enquiry Office. The Enquiry Office was located on C Deck adjacent to the First Class Entrance or “Grand Staircase”. Like the reception desk at a large hotel would, it is through this office that first class passengers conducted much of their onboard business, including the submission of various requests, the purchase of postage stamps and train tickets, hiring of motorcars at ports of call, and the sending and receiving of telegrams. There was a post box for passengers to drop letters in, and just outside the office were three queue dividers and a brochure rack.
  • Image 3: Telegram tube. The brass object in the corner of the wall was a pneumatic tube that ran between the Enquiry Office on C Deck and the Marconi Office on the Boat Deck. It was much like the pneumatic tubes you see at modern banks, except it was used to send telegrams between the two offices. A first class passenger could fill in a telegram form at the front desk (paying by the letter), and the staff would put it into the tube, sending it quickly to the Marconi Office. There, a wireless operator would transmit the message in Morse Code to wherever it was supposed to go. For incoming messages for passengers, the wireless operator would receive the message in Morse Code, jot it down on a telegram, and put that into the tube, sending it to the Enquiry Office. From there, the telegram would be delivered to the recipient.
  • Image 4: Safe. In the Enquiry Office was also a large safe, likely manufactured by Ratner. If first class passengers had money or other valuables they did not wish to keep in their staterooms or carry with them, they could check them into the Enquiry Office to be locked in the safe during the voyage.
  • Images 5-6: Purser’s Office. Adjacent to the Enquiry Office was the Purser’s Office. Both offices operated essentially as one, with the Enquiry Office acting as an extension of the Purser’s Office. The Chief Purser was in charge of the ship’s general administration, and was essentially the onboard business manager, accountant, and chief clerk. Along with his assistants, he handled the filling in of freight and passenger manifests and other bookkeeping matters. The Chief Purser’s other responsibilities included the answering of passengers’ questions and concerns, the resolution of any problems they may have, and the prompt and satisfactory fulfillment of any passengers’ unusual requests. The Chief Purser had to be familiar with the entire ship and everyone on it, and as a result of his duties was probably the second most well-known person on the ship, after the Captain. The Chief Purser aboard the Titanic was Hugh R.W. McElroy.

A few things, just for future reference:

  • The top photo is not from Titanic or any other Olympic Class Liner. Titanic’s life rings didn’t have the ship’s name on them, and Titanic’s port of registry was Liverpool, not London.
  • The middle-left photo of a ship being launched is of Cunard’s RMS Queen Mary, not Titanic.
  • The bottom-left photo is not from any Olympic Class Liner, and was in fact taken in 1963.
  • The bottom-center photo is of Titanic’s sister ship Olympic, not Titanic itself.

Only the middle-right and bottom-right photos are of Titanic.



So I founded that text from Interner:

RMS Titanic was in fact the RMS Olympic - Insurance fraud by JP Morgan

Hi everyone,

I was reading Uncensored magazine last night and there was an excellent article on the Titanic. I decided to do some of my own investigation and tracked down some old photos of both vessels being built, and then, when the Titanic was launched on it’s ill-fated voyage.

For those of you unfamiliar with the background or significance of this, the RMS Olympic had recently crashed into the HMS Hawke, causing a huge amount of damage to both vessels and ripping a gaping hole in the stern of the Olympic, as well as buckling her hull and snapping the tailshaft.

The ship needed to be rebuilt completely at a massive cost to JP Morgan, who was facing a huge insurance loss. 

So he ordered that the Olympic and Titanic were to trade places, and new name plates were riveted over the top of the etched ones. All the identifying items such as crockery etc were swapped also.

Knowing that this vessel was a complete right-off anyway, he sent it to a watery grave where no-one could question it, and made sure to increase the insurance on it a few weeks prior to it departing.

The real Titanic, now re-named the RMS Olympic would keep running in perfect condition and was eventually sold for scrap, and cut up.

However, not many people realised that there were a few minor differences in the two vessels.

The RMS Titanic, when it was built in Ireland, had 14 portholes at the front, and large evenly spaced windows on the second deck.

The RMS Olympic, when it was built side by side the Titanic, had 16 Portholes at the front, and thin, unevenly spaced windows on the second deck.

Notice the difference between the photos of the Titanic being built, and then after the two ships have swapped identities.

Who would know?

But now we know…


Here is the thread!

What do you think about this?

I think this is utter bullshit, that’s what I think. Or to put it another way:

I’ve seen a lot about this whole switch theory, it’s nothing new, and it has been debunked left and right by people who actually know what they’re talking about. First of all…


In this image, the top image is actually Titanic, not Olympic. But there’s a reason for the different windows, and it’s not the switch theory:

When Olympic was designed and built, they had two full-length promenades, one on A Deck, and one on B Deck.

When Titanic was designed and built, it was mainly to Olympic’s specifications, which at first included both full promenades. When Titanic was launched (not finished, just put in the water and sent to be fitted out), she had the entire A Deck promenade open like Olympic, and also had a full B Deck promenade, hence the evenly-spaced larger windows. However, during fitting-out they decided to add some features and change some things on Titanic based on various observations they made on Olympic, which had already been sailing for a little while. On A Deck, they enclosed a section of the promenade. On B Deck ,they eliminated most of the promenade, extending cabins and the a La Carte Restaurant out to the side and leaving a few sections of original promenade for the private promenades and Cafe Parisien. The cabins and restaurant necessitated smaller windows, so they removed the original plating with the large windows and installed new plating with the new window arrangement, except for the windows in the remaining sections of promenade, hence the new window layout.

On Olympic, the A Deck promenade was never enclosed, but they did eventually make similar changes to B Deck, extending the cabins and so forth. However, this wasn’t done until sometime after Titanic’s sinking during a later refit.


For this image:

The difference in the B Deck windows, thin and wide ones, has already been explained.

Photos of the Titanic during construction and launch do show 14 portholes on the bow, and then during fitting out and later there are 16. However, this is also because of changes made during fitting out, not because the ships were switched. It would have been simple matter to add a couple portholes. The location of the T is also explainable  The name seen there is either the result of temporary markings or “photoshopped” into the image. Another photo of Titanic just before launch clearly shows the T in the same place as it is later on in the left photo.

The same change to the portholes was also made on Olympic later on, and most photos I see of Olympic pre and post 1913 refit, and during the rest of her career, show 16 portholes as well.

Additionally, a crap documentary about the supposed switch says that the name letters were “riveted” on over the Olympic letters. They went on to say that some letters had fallen off on the wreck and then showed footage of an M and a P on the wreck which was clearly a work of fake CG. Fact is, the letters TITANIC were etched or cut into the hull plating, not riveted, unable to fall off. The letters are still on the wreck, and nobody has ever seen an M or P on the wreck. The only people who have seen that are idiots who watch that documentary, see the fake M and P on the footage, and believe it.

So, the first post on that thread seems to base their idea that the ships were switched on evidence that actually isn’t evidence of a switch at all and is easily explainable by what we like to call “facts” and “history”, known to people who actually know what the hell they’re talking about and don’t just spend all day on conspiracy forums hating the government and banks and talking about how everything is a conspiracy. There’s more, though:

The windows and portholes and promenades weren’t the only differences. There were numerous differences, mostly minor, between both ships on their interiors and exteriors. It would have taken a hell of a lot of work by thousands of shipyard workers to change everything, ad to do it unquestioningly with nobody talking about it? It’s all one big impossibility. There’s so much more to this that I couldn’t possibly get into it here.

Sufficed to say, this switch theory was concocted in the mid 1990s by a plasterer with too much time on his hands and an active imagination. His effort to convince people it was a conspiracy is nothing more than twisted and made up facts and an overall dish of dishonesty. The same goes for the aforementioned documentary featuring a man whose jaw would have been enough to sink Titanic (oh, I’m sorry, I mean Olympic, how foolish of me). Since his idea popped up, we’ve had lots of time to actually check the facts, something conspiracy theorists don’t do. No actual evidence has ever been found that even remotely indicates the ships were switched, and in any case it’s an entirely absurd proposal to make that makes no sense at all, unless you’ve been drinking too much conspiracy juice, like those who believe the World Trade Center towers were brought down by missiles with hologram planes around them or a super ray gun, or that the Moon Landing was faked, or that lizards are running the planet.

If you really want to get into this ridiculous “theory” and find out why it’s bunk, please read this book: - “Titanic or Olympic: Which Ship Sank” by Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall, people who actually know what they’re talking about.

You can also read two online articles that go into some detail about the conspiracy theory, concocted by a guy named Robin Gardiner, and why it’s bunk, here: - And here:

For people who are already skeptical of this switch idea or already don’t believe it, of course, the aforementioned information and any debunking would be plenty. Unfortunately, most conspiracy theorists will not budge. I can say what I want, those authors and all the world’s Titanic experts can say what they want, and the conspiracy nuts can be shown everything that one can show them that disproves their idea, but they will still believe it’s a conspiracy, and that the ships really were switched, because they don’t accept reality. They would rather live in their own reality where they can make sense of everything by their own standards and convince themselves they live in a world where all events are orchestrated by evil governments and other parties. Conspiracies like these are, in a sense, a religion for these people, and believing them a matter of faith propped up by falsified evidence, fabricated facts, and misunderstandings and pure ignorance, with shoddy logic thrown in. So for the hardcore conspiracy believers, no amount of argument will convince them otherwise  and posts like the one I have just written are ultimately useless.

However, I have written my brief rebuttal not necessarily in the hope that those hardcore believers will see why they’re full of malarkey, but so that someone out there who isn’t a complete imbecile will be able to tell when said bunk is being thrown at them.

I leave you with this:

Just wanted to say hello and thank you to all my lovely new followers! :D

I’m working on some biographies now, should be up within a week hopefully.

Uni started on Monday and I’ve already got 3 labs and readings due Thursday. Idk how I’m really going to manage all of it with still working 5 days a week and diving certification classes. So forgive me if posting slows a little bit. But I WILL finish all the 2,000+ bios eventually. 


A new render of the Titanic exterior model WIP showing one small, but very important, new detail; The name on the bow.

A big thanks to Nicolas Murgia, who supplied the font design used for the name textures. The model is far from finished, but the addition of the ship’s name seems to make it feel much more complete.

In regards to my biographies…

Someone had asked about my sources and if I accept submissions.

If you have any information, images or documents about a passenger that you would like to share with me to be included in a biography I will gladly accept it. I only ask that this information be reliable(if you could provide me with a source to make it easier for me to check as I do with all information I’d appreciate it). If you would like to be given credit let me know.

All my information is taken from various sources. I will not write anything without checking multiple sources first, including birth/death certificates if available, and any other documentation about a person. I use websites, books, census information, news reports, etc as well as ancestry/geneology websites to check information.

In many cases there are contrasting accounts, dates or information about a person, in which case I usually point out both or all of the possibilities if just one is not considered fact. I also understand that every source has their own way of reiterating information and stories can be changed with a few words here and there, and so I do my best to combine all of them into as efficient and sensible a post as possible. 

If you have any corrections for or disagreements with my information let me know!  Or if you have any further questions about a passenger I will try my best to answer! 

In regards to how I’m going about the passengers: By class and last names in alphabetical order. 

Thanks! =)

Born: 8/12/1849 (some sources say 1848 but ‘49 is listed on her death certificate)
M.S.: Single
D.O.D.: 12/4/1913
Travelling With: Anna Hogeboom(sister), Gretchen Fiske Longley(niece)
Buried: Hudson, NY

Daughter of Robert Emmet and Matilda Fonda Andrews, Kornelia Thoedosia Andrews was born in Hudson, New York in 1848. She was a leader in society and charity works, and a graduate of Oberlin College of Ohio (as stated by the New York Times in 1913, however the college itself cannot find records of her attendance). She was a manager of the Hudson City Hospital since its organization, and in 1912 she was the hospital’s Vice President. 

On the night of the sinking, Kornelia was up in bed reading, while her sister Anna and niece Gretchen were sleeping when Titanic struck ice. She claimed that she knew the ship had struck an iceberg due to the pieces of ice coming through the porthole. The crew had told the ladies there was no immediate danger and so they returned to bed. It wasn’t until a little while later when the ladies inquired about the situation again due to commotion in the corridor that they were told to report to the boat decks with lifebelts on. 

Three lifeboats lowered before the ladies got in due to their refusal to separate from one another. Eventually they all were seated in lifeboat #10. Kornelia was very critical of the men allowed in their lifeboat, and describes her experiences,

"We had one sailor, and then any man who could row was allowed to get in and so a Chinese and an Armenian got in, saying they could row, but they could not, so Gretchen assisted the sailor on one side and two or three women on the other, until her hands were frozen stiff…There was Mr. Thayer, president of the Pennsylvania railroad. Mr. John Jacob Astor, having to wave farewell to his beautiful wife, Major Butt and hundreds of others, who probably knew there was no hope for them. We have never seen them since…We were a mile away from the Titanic when there was a great explosion. It appeared to me as if the boilers had blown up and the Titanic had been lifted up amidships and broken in half. This is the way it appeared to me…and then, my dear the screams and the shrieks as 1000 of the steerage went down, and I suppose, the crew and officers and all the Americans. All my life I will hear those shrieks….Here on the Carpathia we see all the time such sad things. Nearly every other woman is weeping for husband or son, and it is all past description.

I have had three staterooms offered me, but there are others who need them much more, and so we slept on the floor in the library with 20 or 30 others, babies crying because both parents were lost, and others because their mothers were gone…The icebergs all around made the water and air intensely cold, and those long, long hours of agony, nearly 10 hours in mid-ocean, women crying all around because they felt so sure their husbands and brothers would not be saved. One woman had two little ones. Her husband and three others were not with us and we have never heard of them. And now, I could not tell you in weeks the sad, sad, stories around us.”

Kornelia also reported of an officer in their boat flicking a lit match at them causing a stir among the women. They were rescued by the Carpathia and eventually returned to their homes in Hudson, NY. After the sinking Miss Andrews filed a claim for $480.50 with the White Star Line. She passed away in 1913 in Hudson, NY from pneumonia.
