Photo of Iceberg that Sunk the Titanic to be Sold at Auction

RR Auction

This is definitely what I’d buy if I had $8,000 to blow on a 9.75 x 8 photo of an iceberg. The photo was taken by the captain of the Leyland Line steamer S.S. Etonian, just days before the Titanic passengers and crew allegedly lost their lives to it.

I say allegedly simply because any pictures taken by the Titanic crew of the notorious iceberg were lost to the Atlantic, but it is very similar to sketches found. So while no one is 100 percent sure the is THE iceberg, experts agree that it more than likely is.

In my professional judgment this iceberg is the one that sunk the Titanic,” said expert Stanley Lehrer in a Daily Mail article. “The captain (of the S.S. Etonian) took the pictures because he was fascinated with the unusual shape of the iceberg. This particular iceberg had an ellipse on the top right of the iceberg.
