The Infamous Luxury Liner
When you hear the word “Titanic,” your mind probably automatically goes to the Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet blockbuster film directed by James Cameron; the one in which the mammoth ship hits a giant iceberg, causing it to break in two and sink into the ocean.
While older generations are aware, many youngsters don’t realize that this massive ship was actually a luxurious 5-star hotel that hosted some of the wealthiest people of the nation. The ship’s richest passenger was John Jacob Astor, who sadly did not make it out of the catastrophe alive. When his body was recovered from the wreck, $2440 was found in his pocket. This image shows one of the ship’s grandest cabins.
