Love Exploring Logo By loveEXPLORING staff of Love Exploring | Slide 1 of 46: When the RMS Titanic left Southampton, England on 10 April 1912 bound for New York, she was the largest ocean liner afloat and thought to be unsinkable. More than a ship, the Titanic was a symbol of the wealth, extravagant tastes and engineering skill of the Edwardian age. But the liner's collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic on 14 April and the loss of over 1,500 lives marked the end of an era. Today, 108 years on, the Titanic's story continues to captivate. Here, using beautiful period images, we look at what life was really like on the most famous and ill-fated voyage in history.
