Rare Titanic photo up for auction

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:51 pm

A rare photograph of the Titanic, likely taken the day before she set sail on her fateful maiden voyage, is up for auction in the U.K.

The sepia image, which measures 18 inches x 11 inches, was probably taken on April 9 1912 at Titanic’s berth in Southampton, U.K., according to auction house Henry Aldridge & Son.

“The clarity and detail are astonishing,” explained Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneer Andrew Aldridge, in an email to Fox News. “It’s truly incredible and certainly the most detailed [Titanic photograph] I have seen.” The image, he noted, shows rappelling window cleaners and even a workman on a gantry touching up the paint work on Titanic’s hull.
