Rare Photographs Taken Aboard the Titanic (1912)
On April 14, 1912, the Titanic hit an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland and on April 15, 1912 the
“unsinkable” ship sank killing 1,523 passengers. Prior to its fateful voyage to New York City, the ship
traveled from Southampton to Cobh (Queenstown) in Ireland. For that short trip, Father Francis Browne
was gifted a first class ticket by his uncle, Robert Browne (Bishop of Coyne). An avid photographer,
Fr. Browne snapped a series of photographs of the Titanic that give insight to life onboard and are an
important part of its history. The entire image gallery can be found at Titanic Photographs and more of
the history behind the photographs can be found at the Father Browne website. A commemorative book
of digitally remastered photographs titled Father Browne’s Titanic Album: Centenary Edition is available
to purchase at Messenger Publications.
