Water a mile away from where the Titanic had struck the iceberg was nearly 60 degrees F, the water was icy cold because of something called a Labrador Current which is a current in the North Atlantic which flows from the Arctic Ocean south along the coast of Labrador. Had they sunk a mile away...hundreds or thousands of lives could have been saved.
Without question, the ugliest poster of the bunch, but Titanic-mania is sure to make this a top seller. “This is one of the Holy Grails for Titanic collectors,” said Nicholas Lowry of Swann Gallery. The extremely rare poster is advertising 3rd-class tickets for the return trip!
