Titanic Fancy Dress With a Twist
RMS Titanic, perhaps the most famous ocean liner ever to set sail on one of the planets oceans is about to reach a milestone that, personally, is not only a reminder of how technology and society has advanced in a relatively short time but also what a horrific tragedy occurred in the North Atlantic Ocean one direful evening 100 years ago. It was April 15th at roughly 2:40am GMT, some four days into the maiden voyage when the ship collided with an iceberg in its journey from Southampton to New York City. It took just two and three quarter hours for the 46,000 tonne ship to plummet to the depths of the sea bed.
The largest ship afloat at the time, less than a third of those aboard Titanic survived the disaster. The sinking of Titanic resulted in the deaths of 1,514 people.
