More Titanic pictures

The table is set...


The “Straus couple” passengers had the sweetest Valentine story of our guests this night.  Mrs. Straus had an opportunity to board a lifeboat but refused because she didn’t want to leave her husband of many years.  Because of his age, he was offered a place but also turned down the offer saying that he didn’t want special treatment because of his position in life. (He founded Macy’s Department Store)  After living a full life with his love, he wanted to die with her as well.  They were last seen going to their first class quarters where they most likely passes away.
