Aspiring singer Miss Hilda Mary Slater, 30, was returning to America from a trip to England, where she had bought her wedding dress. When she arrives in New York, Hilda would be getting married to Harry Lacon, the son of a British baron who lived on an island off the coast of British Columbia.
The bride-to-be set sail on April 10, 1912 as a second-class passenger on board R.M.S. Titanic. Miss Hilda survived the tragedy of the Titanic, but a hundred years later, the whole world is still haunted by the “unsinkable” ship’s moving story.
For the centennial commemoration of the Titanic’s maiden voyage, the Singapore ArtScience Museum took visitors on a journey of the ship’s history. The passengers’ personal stories came to life in 275 out of the 5,500 artifacts recovered from the ship, which lay hidden for 87 years on the ocean floor.
