WPC: Names

When you take the Titanic Experience in Cobh, Ireland, you will be given a ticket with a real name on it. The name belongs to one of the passengers on board the famous ship. Through the journey, you will find out if you (i.e. the person in the ticket) lived or died.

Here is the ticket I was given and the fate of the person whose name I was given. I quite rather liked it. It made the whole experience fun, even though I was sad to find her sad story.

Wonder why Annie Moore is looking in the direction totally opposite  to where Anthony is pointing?

Remembering the Unidentified

In Cobh (County of Cork, Ireland), there was a board which listed the names of those people who were in RMS Lusitania ship and who were washed ashore (both Victims and Survivors) on 7th May 1915. Most of them were dedicated to a specific person. But I found this one where it paid tribute to those unidentified number of passengers who died during the ship attack. I thought it was a very nice gesture and was glad to have found that. Those who were unidentified should be remembered too.

All aboard the Titanic

My next stop was Cobh. This is the place famous for being the last port call for the ship RMS Titanic. They have a heritage center dedicated for the same along with the history of Cobh.

It was fun to see the inside story and the history of not just the Titanic but other ships which sailed past and their histories.1-IMG_3470

The tickets will belong to real people who traveled in the given ship. You will figure out their fates once you are done with the tour.

Looks like Margaret Rice and her children didn’t survive the journey 😦

After that journey, we went on for a walk around the town for some photographs. 1-IMG_35121-IMG_3520
