1912 RMS Titanic Departure Footage.

Some researchers think that this is RMS Olympic due to the "A" deck promenade being open instead of enclosed. Officially we are being told that this is Titanic.

Titanic had departed from Southampton on 10 April 1912, and then stopped at Cherbourg, France. Her next stop was in Queenstown (now Cobh), Ireland, before heading west towards New York.[9] On 14 April, four days into the crossing and about 375 miles (600 km) south of Newfoundland, she hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm ship's time. The collision caused the hull plates to buckle inwards along her starboard (right) side and laid five of her sixteen watertight compartments open to the sea; she had been designed to survive the flooding of up to four compartments. Some passengers and crew members were evacuated in lifeboats. A disproportionate number of men were left aboard because of a "women and children first" protocol for loading lifeboats, which was generally observed.[10]

At 2:20 am, the ship broke apart and foundered, with well over one thousand people still aboard. Just under two hours after Titanic sank, the Cunard liner RMS Carpathia arrived on the scene, and took on board an estimated 710 survivors.
