About the images in the enclosed book (80 pages)
The photographs in this book are taken from The Father Browne SJ Photographic Collection. Frank Browne (1880-1960) sailed with the Titanic on the first part of the luxury ship’s maiden voyage from Southampton to Cobh (Queenstown) in Ireland.
The trip was a gift from his uncle who had also given Browne a camera which enabled him to document the journey. Brown befriended a well-to-do American family onboard. They invited him to travel on to New York with them but Browne’s uncle
opposed and ordered his nephew to land in Cobh. It was a blow for the young traveler but ended up saving both Browne and his unique photographs.
The book is also illustrated with Per Nørgård’s scores for Titanic.
