A picture of the iceberg (below) that is believed to have sunk the RMS Titanic almost 100 years ago, April 15, 1912, has been unearthed.
Historians say the photograph is the only original image of the iceberg that collided with the famous passenger ship. The black and white picture was taken by a passenger, Mabel Fenwick, on the RMS Carpathia, a ship that came late to help the 705 survivors of the Titanic tragedy, which killed 1523 people.
The picture features one the Titanic’s lifeboats in the top right corner of the pic.
The photo was given to J. John Pillsbury Snyder, a 24-year-old man who was returning from a 2-month honeymoon tour of Europe along with his wife, Nelle. The Snyders were among the passengers who survived Titanic’s wrecking.
