This small volume, companion to an exhibit put on by the Mariners' Museum of Newport News, Virginia, brings readers a little closer to understanding the lives of the passengers and crew of Titanic. The numerous photographs include not only portraits of people on board the ship, but snapshots of several artifacts--including Titanic postcards and passenger lists, as well as John Jacob Astor's gold cuff links and the medal given to the crew of the Carpathia for their rescue efforts.From School Library Journal:
YA?This catalog of an exhibition at the Mariners' Museum in Newport News, VA, is a wonderful addition to the resources on this popular subject. Including letters, pictures, newspaper articles, clothing, and other mementos, the book is a comprehensive resource that students will find fascinating for browsing and research. Pictures with short explanatory captions grace every page. The easily read text is interwoven with rarely seen photographs ranging from scenes of the ship and her passengers to artifacts retrieved from salvage or the attics of descendants of the survivors. Logically arranged around enticing one-word chapter titles, the minimal text and related pictures move from background information, through life onboard the ship, the sinking itself, and the aftermath. A detailed list of both passengers and crew includes age, class, occupation, and whether or not they were lost or saved. The thorough index makes the book useful for reports as it refers to both text and illustrations. The wealth of pictures will assure student interest.?Anita Short, W. T.
