This photo of the iceberg that sank the Titanic was taken by the chief steward of the German ocean liner SS Prinz Adalbert just hours after the tragedy. Its identity was confirmed by a red streak of paintwork scraped across its base, an indication that it had collided with a vessel in the past 12 hours or so

"Ruth Becker, titanic survivor. Ruth was twelve when the ship sank, when she was unable to get into a lifeboat with her family she was left on board alone until a passing steward threw her to a lifeboat that was being lowered. She never spoke of the Titanic, her own children never knew she was on board, until she was elderly. Her ashes were scattered over the titanic site in the Atlantic ocean..."

This is believed to be the iceberg that sank the Titanic on April 14-15, 1912. The photograph was taken from the deck of the Western Union Cable Ship, Mackay Bennett, commanded by Captain DeCarteret. The Mackay Bennett was one of the first ships to reach the scene of the Titanic disaster. According to Captain DeCarteret, this was the only berg at the scene of the sinking when he arrived. It was assumed, therefore, that it was responsible for the sea tragedy.(United States Coast Guard)

For over 100 years, this photo was hidden in the private collection of the family of a crew member of the ship, Mackay Bennett, which served as a body recovery ship for the sunken Titanic. This photo, taken 9 days after Titanic sank, shows a mass funeral aboard Mackay Bennett for those whose bodies were recovered. The celebrant (draped in white) was Reverend Hind.

Do you know who Charles Joughin is? Well you should. His story of surviving the Titanic is most extraordinary. After fortifying his body with two bottles of whiskey, Joughin rode the Titanic into the ocean similar to Jack and Rose in the movie and simply stepped off the bow without even getting his head wet, then spent 3 hours in the frigid waters before being rescued. He was one of only a few survivors to weather the icy wet conditions. Many attribute this to the whiskey.
