At full capacity, Titanic’s lifeboats could hold 1,178 persons. 705 were rescued from the lifeboats by the Carpathia.
A blog dedicated to RMS Titanic, her passengers & crew, and the stories she still tells today. I will occasionally write my own articles & research, & welcome Asks & Submissions as well!
This blog was created by Tanya, 25 years old, a History & Maritime Studies major, minor in Archaeology. 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.
Although this blog mainly focuses on Titanic, other things ship-related in history will be posted.
This is not a blog for the film - but since I am a fan of it, I might occasionally post or repost some things from it.
Thank you for checking out my blog!
