On this day in 1912, the RMS Titanic sunk, and, well, the rest is history. Here’s some information you
- The Titanic was famously equipped. But did you know that the ill-fated ship even had its own newspaper? It was called The Atlantic Daily Bulletin.
- While the ship might’ve cornered the market on journalism, it certainly didn’t shine when it came to hygiene: there were only 2 bathtubs in Third Class – that’s 2 tubs for over 700 people!
- Despite its famous profile, the Titanic had a sham smokestack. Only three stacks were necessary to release steam from the ship’s boilers, but it was felt that a fourth stack made it look far more impressive & powerful, so a fake stack was added.
Between the Titanic and the adventures of Gilligan and his crew, we’re afraid that boats are getting a rather bad rap. We’d like to change that, and you can help!
