SS Atlantic - 1873

Marrs Head, Mosher Island


This engraving shows the desperate struggle to escape the wreck of the SS Atlantic and the heroic struggle of rescuers in the biggest ocean liner disaster before the Titanic sinking. Despite the depiction of women being rescued, not a single woman survived the tragedy.
