It’s been 112 years since the ill-fated maiden voyage of the SS Titanic came to a tragic end, as it sank in icy North Atlantic Ocean waters some 400 miles off the coast of Newfoundland. In the early-morning hours of April 15, 1912, the ship struck an iceberg and more than 1,500 people died of the estimated 2,224 on board.

As time has passed, and certainly even more so after the 1997 James Cameron blockbuster film “Titanic” came out, the ship and its sinking have captured the attention of the public even more. Let’s take a look at some images of the ship, and the legacy it has left behind.
