The Story of the Titanic Told in Pictures

The Titanic lifeboat, holding some of the lucky few survivors.

In the lifeboats, survivors listened to the agonizing cries of their fellow passengers and crew dying in the ice-cold waters of the North Atlantic. The survivors shivered and huddled together for warmth. Most lifeboats did not have lamps or a compass. Occasionally, someone would light a piece of paper to signal their lifeboat's position to the other lifeboats. All eyes scoured the horizon for the Carpathia, the rescue ship they'd heard about.
