The tragic story about the Titanic needs no introduction.
But just in case you didn’t know, it was a luxury liner that set sail in 1912 and sunk after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean. It claimed more than 1,500 lives as it sank in freezing cold waters.
Titanic fan and digital artist Thomas Schmid took some old photographs of the Titanic and colorized them.
The result gives us a glimpse of what the ship and its many magnificent rooms might have looked like in its prime.
Even a century later, the Titanic still manages to give us a little pull and yearning for that glamour and lifestyle, despite the ill fate.
The wooden paneling and rich, dark fabrics would have been the very latest in interior design in 1912.
Wealthier passengers would have taken the morning air on this seating area on deck.
There was even a gym on board.
This is Captain Arthur H. Rostron of the Carpathia, the ship that picked up the 710 surviving passengers after a night in the freezing ocean. He’s receiving a trophy for his life-saving actions here.
But the sumptuous interior the Titanic was famous for was only for those with a first-class ticket…;
Passengers traveling third-class would have eaten here.
The largest ship passenger of its time, the tale of the Titanic continues to fascinate people even today.
