Relive that fateful night that took place one hundred years ago in these lavishly illustrated pages of Titanic: The Tragedy That Shook The World, published by Time Life Books. In large format this book contains never-seen-before photographs of Franck Brown (aka Father Brown), an accomplished photographer who had been on the ship shortly before he disembarked in Ireland. Pictures tell stories from the time of ship constructions to its discovery in 1985 and today's lasting memories in films and books.
Captain Smith, Molly Brown, Jack Phillips, Benjamin Guggenheim, John Jacob Astor IV, Dorothy Gibson...names and faces of survivors and victims that look out from haunting portraits on these pages lend a human touch to the book. Read the tragic story of the Titanic sinkage as if it just happened yesterday.
