titanic-era

La scena della coppia di anziani che si vede nel film “Titanic” che sta abbracciata nel letto si basa in realtà su una storia vera. Si chiamavano Ida e Isidor Straus ed entrambi sono morti sul titanic. A Ida era stato offerto un posto su una scialuppa ma rifiutò per stare con il marito. Anche al marito fu offerto un posto, che decise di rifutare per salvare donne e bambini. Ida disse “abbiamo vissuto insieme per molti anni. Dove vai tu, vado io.”

The Titanic moored at Belfast - probably on April 2nd 1912.

RMS Titanic was designed and constructed at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland under the supervision of marine architect Alexander Carlisle and chief designer Thomas Andrews.  |  She was 882 feet 9 inches in length and 92 feet in breadth. Her gross tonnage was 46,328 tons. Three propellers were driven by two four-cylinder, triple-expansion, inverted reciprocating steam engines and one low-pressure Parsons turbine. Steam was provided by 25 double-ended and 4 single-ended Scotch-type boilers fired by 159 coal burning furnaces that gave her a theoretical top speed of 23 knots.
