100 Years Ago Today-April 11, 1912-2012
100 years ago today, the Titanic stopped off shore at Queenstown, Ireland because the harbor wasn't big enough to contain her. At Queenstown, the ferries brought mail and passengers. Most of the passengers from there were 3rd class including Daniel Buckley, who would become known for his account of the sinking later. It was also the time for other passengers already on board to disembark. One of those was Father Brown, a Priest who took many pictures of life on board. His pictures were made valuable and famous when the Titanic sank. When the Titanic lifted her anchor and sailed away, it would be the last time over 1,500 people would see land and the last time the world would see the Titanic for 75 years.
