A blog dedicated to RMS Titanic, her passengers & crew, and the stories she still tells today. We will occasionally write our own articles & research, & we welcome Asks & Submissions as well! Enjoy our biography project where we are writing detailed profiles of each passenger and crew member!
This blog was created by Tanya, a History & Maritime Studies major, minor in Archaeology and pursuing a wreck-diving certification with her degree. She is a member of the Titanic Historical Society and dreams of a career in preserving underwater artifacts, specifically from Titanic, and opening her own museum & historical society in New York.
Jeni is co-owner of this blog. She is an Anthropology and History major, who does tours in the New York metro area and helps with research. She also focuses on fashions throughout history and social history.
Although this blog mainly focuses on Titanic, other things ship-related in history will be posted.
The iceberg that sunk the Titanic, 1912
Taken by a Captain De Carteret of the Minia, one of a few cable ships – vessels ordinarily used to lay deep sea cables, such as those for telecommunications – sent to the site of the shipwreck to recover corpses and debris. The captain claimed this was the only iceberg in the area, and the red paint was again a clear sign that a ship had recently struck it.
Well my hiatus was much longer than expected. But I am back! I’m going to try to be on this blog as much as I can, its hard going to school and working 6 days a week.
I missed the last Titanic tour which really upset me, I was looking forward to getting new information and pictures, but I got scheduled for work. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to walk it again with a friend of mine who went, or they’ll do it again soon.
Anyway - Thanks for sticking around and not unfollowing me! And thank you to everyone who responded to my Ismay questions, hopefully I’ll get that article done soon!
