The Porthole Window

 

Titanic-Thumbnails-300x300(8)

This porthole window frame (one of 0ver 2000) is completely bent from the sinking of the Titanic. The one inch thick glass window is gone, along with the rivets, swallowed by the depths of the North Atlantic. Passengers of a certain class would have had porthole windows in their cabins, giving them the opportunity to gaze in wonder at the vast expanse of ocean surrounding them, or marvel at the waves hitting the ship’s sides in stormy weather.
