Strange and Macabre Facts about the Titanic

We’ve all heard the history of the sinking of the Titanic. We’ve heard of the pomp and pagentry involved in the luxurious vessel as well as the tremendous loss of life. What we seldom hear is the events leading up to it.

I’ll paste a link below where you can visit the source I stumbled across.

  • The White Star Line had no naming ceremony for the ship. Sailors regarded this as a terrible portent.
  • The ship nearly wrecked as soon as it left the construction dock. Another maritime bad omen.
  • Mechanics in the boiler room, before the ship’s final voyage, noticed a number of rats running together. They recalled later that the rats were running away from the area of the ship that would collide with the iceberg.
  • Helen E. Bell was going to sail on the Titanic… until she read an article which prompted a vision. She saw a sunken ship and heard, “this will be on its first voyage.”

These are just a few brief examples of the staggering numbers of omens, portents and strange stories surrounding this ship. More can be found here.
