Colorized Photos of the RMS Titanic Showing What Life Was Really Like On Board Just Days Before It Sank

    The true story of what happened to the RMS Titanic is as extraordinary as it is emotional, and familiar to most of us through the epic 1997 film. It was on April 15th of 1912 that the British passenger liner sank in the North Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg. The ambitious voyage was only a few days into its journey from Southampton, UK, to New York City.
