This photograph is stamped as being taken at 7am on the 19th of April, 1912. People form a crowd at Cunard’s Pier 54 in New York, possibly waiting for more news on what happened to the Titanic.
RMS Carpathia had arrived the evening before carrying the survivors of Titanic’s sinking. It is said around 40 000 people were waiting to see the ship arrive.
These images, taken on the 15th of April, 1912, show survivors of the sinking of the RMS Titanic arriving at and being helped aboard the RMS Carpathia 107 years ago.
Six years later the Carpathia was torpedoed by a German submarine.
