Titanic infographic / This isn't a book, but really interesting stories. Especially that of William T. Stead. What I want to know is: if he went to sit and read a book while the ship sank after all the boats had gone, how did anyone know he did this?
Now hopefully I can find one from the Titanic = my favorite and greatest section of all time! Cross-section of the HMS Olympic from the August 14, 1909 issue of "The Illustrated London".
Anchor Men - Mauretania This is another illustration of the size and weight of the anchor chains of the "Mauretania". RMS MAURETANIA was one of the most famous ships ever built on Tyneside.

When a ship it sinks it leaves a path of debris (objects from within the ship or objects breaking off). Depending how deep the vessel sinks this debris can be scattered over a large distance. On a shorter descent, the debris falls more or less vertically. However, as the Titanic sank 21/2 miles a huge debris field was expected.
