Some fascinating shots of the Titanic

Having recently read a book about the musicians on board the Titanic, I was very interested in these pictures:

I’m told (if I recall correctly – and a family member can correct me if I’m wrong) that my great-great-grandfather – who was a baker around Sadlers Wells when Gilbert and Sullivan were in their hey-day – had a ticket for the Titanic, but was persuaded to emigrate to Australia instead.

What do you think?
