These Real Titanic Photos Are More Riveting Than The Movie

Rarely seen photos of the Titanic before and during it's fateful voyage that will leave you speechless.


#1. The Royal Mail Ship Titanic

The Royal Mail Ship (RMS) Titanic was officially launched by the White Star Line on May 31, 1911. It was built in response to their competitors’ new ocean liners, Mauritania and Lusitania, which were breaking White Star Line’s records for size and speed.

#2. Massive Propellers

This image taken towards the end of construction gives a clear idea for just how massive the Titanic was. The ship was 883 feet long, which is taller than any building at that time had the ship been placed upright.

#3. Honeymooners Aboard Titanic

This image features Mr. & Mrs. George A. Harder, who were aboard Titanic for a honeymoon trip. The photographer, Bernie Palmer, sold the rights to this picture and others for a mere $10 not realizing they’d be worth much more money in years to come. The woman facing away from the camera survived the shipwreck but her husband unfortunately died.
