The Crew of Titanic
The Musicians who played to the end, on board the Titanic: The band played the song, Nearer My God to Thee at 2:13 a.m. It was a prayer to everyone. It is thought by some that the band leader, Wallace Hartley, started playing by himself at first and then the rest of the band joined in. The band knew 352 different songs by heart. They had to be ready for any requests the passengers might make on the trip.
On April 10, 1912, Millvina Dean boarded Titanic in third class with her parents and older brother. Her father, Bertram Dean, perished with the ship. Tiny Millvina was lowered into a lifeboat and was rescued along with her mother and brother. Arriving in New York City with nothing but the clothes on their backs, they were soon greeted by charitable New Yorkers who gave them a small wicker suitcase filled with donated clothing to help rebuild their lives.

Captain Smith and boy on bridge
This photo shows Captain Smith on the bridge with a young boy. I highly doubt that this is on board Titanic. But on another ship the Captain was Master of. This shows what he would have looked like on Titanic.
In order to accommodate Titanic's machinery, lights and heating systems, a generating plant powered by steam from the boilers was on board. Approximately two miles of electrical cable was strung in Titanic. #WednesdayWonder #Titanic #Trivia
