The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that famously struck an iceberg in April 1912. Of the 2,224 passengers and crew on board, more than 1500 perished; there was only sufficient space in the lifeboats for around half of the people on board and many of the lifeboats left half empty.
The Titanic had been built as a floating hotel, with many luxuries on board for the 1st class passengers. Some of those first class passengers were well known, such as J.J. Astor of the Astor dynasty, Bruce Ismay who was chairman and managing director of the White Star Line and Mr. and Mrs. Isador Straus, co-owner of the famous Macy's department store. Ismay survived the sinking, the other passengers did not.
The event was one of the worst peacetime shipping disasters there have ever been, made even more the bitter due to it being the maiden voyage of what had been hailed as the unsinkable ship.
Today, original Titanic items and memorabilia sell for high amounts and even replica items still generate a great deal of interest and money.

The pictures vary in size and quality from great quality 300dpi photos from the Bain collection through to scans of images from newspapers and books (which may not have been the best reproductions at the time).

The disc also includes a comprehensive article about the copyright rules in both the UK and the US and how they affect each other.
