Is that an exercise room? I had no idea the concept of physical fitness was considered important back then.

You know what would make these photos better? Instagram! It could make them appear as though they were taking in the old timey daguerreotype days!

That's a shop. I can tell because that big yellow onion is an anachronism. The war hadn't started for another couple of years so there would have been plenty of white onions for self-respecting folks to wear on their belts.

Maybe it was DIGITIZED recently, but I remember seeing these photos back during the LAST Titanic hype-o-thon back in 1994.

Yes, the Titanic was real, but only half of the story has thus far been told. Until now:

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after it's stop in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of Mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was lost.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting it's delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe on this day. That day we now know as Cinco de Mayo.

MacWizard: One pic says it shows a doctor examining the passenger's eyes as they board.

Why?


They wanted everyone on board to have good vision to help keep an eye out for any obstacles that might be in the ocean. Sure, there's probably nothing out there but water, but you never can be too careful!

Most likely third class passengers who were immigrating. Doctors from the ship lines would check them out for highly contagious diseases like Pink-Eye or measles because it would A) run rampant on ships and B) if they were denied entry to the US it would be the liner's responsibility to bring them back.

While Lunchlady's answer makes more sense, when I read the caption my line of thought kind of followed Debeo Summa Credo, just because it specifically said it was an eye test.

Wait till you're my age. I've seen over a dozen different movies about it, and seen dozens of TV specials over the years. There have been many, many books. All that was before Cameron came along. Yet from my perspective, Titanic only *just recently* "got big".

All I can suggest is to buckle up and get used to it. Titanic will indeed go on. I got used to it a long time ago. In fact, I find the pre-Cameron era of Titanic remembrance somewhat romantic (or at least less cloying).

The one thing that *does* bug me is that no one ever talks about what really was the greatest passenger ship disaster in history -- the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, with some 9500 souls lost. Now, it can be argued that those people were very unfortunate victims of war, as were the people on the Lusitania: both were torpedoed by submarines during wartime. But Titanic isn't even the greatest peacetime ship disaster: more than twice as many souls went down with the Dona Paz in 1987.

Intoxoman: the movie bored me to drunkeness the one time I watched it


This guy wrote the best review of it I've seen.

My mother was an historian, and in that something of a Titanic buff, though she refused to see Cameron's ridiculous film. From her, I learned more than I really wanted to know, but it was all interesting. One of those little facts bubbled up the one time I saw it: the real event took less time.
 
2012-04-12 10:06:13 PM
I dunno, the Titanic stuff is somewhat interesting to me. Screw the movie- aside from what's-her-face's tits (drawing a blank on her name... I'm tired and too lazy to google) it sucks.

But the ship itself interests me; I couldn't tell you why. Maybe it's just contrasting it to modern cruise ships in terms of amenities and layout. Maybe it's some kind of engineering thing. But the stuff that really dissects what happened to the vessel itself interests me.

But then, that kind of thing about the Lusitania, Andrea Doria, or even some ubiquitous Liberty Ship would interest me as well.
