Of this photo he’s restored and colourised, Rob Cross tweets:

…the last known picture of the Titanic taken by Irish Jesuit priest Francis Browne on April 12, 1912 after she departed Queenstown, Ireland. Three days later 1514 people would lose their lives in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

      Ah now, are you proposing that Irish Jesuit priest Francis Browne took some photos underwater on April 12, 1912? Sentence is technically correct (the best sort of correct) failing re-punctuation.

    Ah, the Titanic!

    The ship that so many of the dead got free invites for!
    The ship that so many others decided not to travel on at the last minute!
    The ship whose sinking was written about in a novel some years earlier (just like the Wuhan flu! the author committed suicide btw)
    The ship whose sinking led to the creation of the Federal Reserve!

    You’d be forgiven for thinking the disaster was a convenient set-up (albeit at the expense of many many lives).

    History is so interesting sometimes!

    except it really didn’t. morgan was accused of killing guggenheim, straus and astor who were supposedly opponents of the establishment of the reserve. straus was actually in favour of it.
    also, guggenheim booked his ticket after morgan cancelled his journey.
    you shouldn’t confuse history with a qanon thread.
