Hi I'm Will, I'm nineteen years old and I've been interested in the Titanic since I saw the 1997 film Titanic, when I was four years old. I decided to make a Tumblr and post stuff about the Titanic. I hope to join the Titanic Historical Society someday.
Mrs. J.J. “Molly” Brown presenting trophy cup award to Capt. Arthur Henry Rostron, for his service in the rescue of the Titanic. The committee for the award was chaired by Frederick Kimber Seward, 1912 Sir Arthur Henry Rostron, KBE, RD, RNR (14 May 1869 – 4 November 1940) was a Captain for the Cunard Line and was the master of the ocean liner RMS Carpathia when it rescued the survivors of the RMS Titanic which sank on 15 April 1912 after striking an iceberg.
This is a plaque from one of Titanic’s lifeboats. Only 13 lifeboats were taken aboard the Carpathia on April 15th so only 26 ‘SS TITANIC’ plaque have ever been recovered. The dark wood was obviously attached later to make a nice presentation piece.
I apologise for not getting the full plaque in the picture but it was in a rotating case and I looked like a total fool trying to chase it around to get a good picture.
