Titanic 1912 and some August 2013 Photos

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is a clip that was made in 1912 of the Titanic...and some of the survivors of the disaster.  I am fascinated and glad that we are able to see footage of the real Titanic and thought this video was very well done.  It is courtesy of the British Pathe.

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took in August 2013.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  2. Lovely flowers, the lilies down here might be what we call " Christmas Lily" and the orange one, is that a gerbera? Stay warm, Jim tells me that near Halifax it is not sooo cold!! Greetings from Jean

  11. I had not seen that footage. Thank you for sharing it. What a horrific thing those people endured. Thinking about that cold water and being plunged into it is a nightmare. However, the stories surrounding the Titanic fascinate us still today.

  19. Hi Linda, back in those days Belfast and Glasgow were the shipbuilding capitals of the world. It's a shame it has to be nostalgic clips to remember those glory days. Successive British governments are to blame for our loss of all our great manufacturing skills.
    I love bees collecting pollen.

  26. It's sad to see actual footage of the Titanic before she went down, and the faces of people who probably went down with her.

    Beautiful flowers Linda !
