The RMS Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world when she set off on her maiden voyage from Southampton England, to New York City on April 10, 1912 with 2,223 people on board. Four days into the crossing, at 23:40 on April 14, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank at 2:20 the following morning, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people. This is one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The high casualty rate was due in part to the fact that the ship only carried enough lifeboats for 1,178 people.
Among the survivors of the Titanic sinking was nine week old Millvina Dean, her mother and brother; they would survive on Lifeboat 10. The three surviving members of the Dean family went on to live long healthy lives; Dean's mother passed away at age 96, her brother passed at age 80, and Millvina, who was last living survivor of the Titanic, passed away on May 31, 2009 at the age of 97. This photograph of the famous Titanic ship is personally signed by Millvina.

Dean's father would perish when the great ship went down; but she, her brother, and their mother would survive on Lifeboat 10. The three surviving members of the Dean family went on to live long healthy lives; Dean's mother passed away at age 96, her brother passed at age 80, and Millvina, passed away on May 31, 2009 at the age of 97. |

- Beam: 92.5 feet

On April 10, 1912, the Titanic commenced her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York, with 2,227 passengers and crew aboard. At 11:40 p.m. on the night of 14 April, traveling at a speed of 20.5 knots, she struck an iceberg on her starboard bow. At 2:20 a.m. she sank, approximately 13.5 miles east-southeast of the position from which her distress call was transmitted. Lost at sea were 1,522 people, including passengers and crew. The 705 survivors, afloat in the ship's twenty lifeboats, were rescued within hours by the Cunard Liner, Carpathia.
The wreck of the Titanic was located by a French and American team on 1 September 1985 in 12,500 feet (3,810 m) of water about 350 miles (531 km) southeast of Newfoundland, Canada. A 1986 expedition documented the shipwreck more thoroughly.
