Titanic Orphans On Water 1913

Children emulate lifeboat scene

Titanic Orphans On Water 1913
Children from the Seamen's Orphanage at Southampton, including the offspring of many crew drowned on the Titanic, on holiday at Ryde, Isle of Wight.

A little over a year before, their fathers looked out from the sinking Titanic at what they could glimpse of a similar scene - small craft at rest on peaceful water.
