The RMS 'Titanic' leaving Southampton, 10 April 1912. Operated by the White Star Line, 'Titanic' was the largest and most luxurious ocean liner of her time, and thought to be unsinkable. During her maiden voyage, bound for New York, she struck an iceberg in thick fog off Newfoundland on 14 April 1912. In the collision five of her watertight compartments were compromised and she sank. Out of the 2228 people on board, only 705 survived. A major cause of the loss of life was the insufficient number of lifeboats she carried. Postcard.
