Original unsigned vintage first generation photo of the Titanic wreck site, 5.25 x 3.5, taken aboard the Carpathia on the morning of April 15, 1912. Photo shows the frozen north Atlantic, with two icebergs off in the distance, and visible in the upper right corner, the hull of a lifeboat, with a hauling rope passing diagonally through the image. Given the position of the rope, this lifeboat likely belonged to the Titanic, as the Carpathia delivered the Titanic’s lifeboats to New York. Photo was taken by Mabel Fenwick, a newlywed passenger on the Carpathia. She took numerous photographs that day, and provided this one to John Snyder, whom she befriended on the boat. In very good condition, with trimmed right edge, missing top left corner, and some light creases. A stoic image the morning after the tragedy. RRAuction COA.
