On April 14, 1912, the H.M.S. Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. About three hours later, at 2:20 a.m. April 15, the gigantic ocean liner was gone. Over 1,500 of its 2,223 passengers died.

The S.S. Carpathia was one of the ships picking up survivors and the photo included here (from the Library of Congress collection) was of an iceberg in the area, which has been identified as the one that drifted into the path of the Titanic.

The ship had left Southampton, England, April 10, on its maiden voyage, planned for New York, but it now rests on the Atlantic Ocean floor, under 12,600 feet of water. Over 1,500 died.

Dr Robert Ballard found the wreckage in 1985. Items from the Titanic still fetch high prices in various auctions.
