ON BOARD THE TITANIC

In homage to the 112th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, here are pictures from the collection of Fr. Browne S.J., an Irish member of the Jesuit order who survives the disaster taken just days before the doomed liner went down to its watery grave.

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD


Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World, 
With the wonderful water round you curled, 
And the wonderful grass upon your breast-- 
World, you are beautifully drest.
