Titanic-Thumbnails-300x300(4)

The Titanic’s ship’s manifest tell us that the grand vessel left from Southampton dock with over 20000 bottles of wine, beer and the liquor. Included here are 4 of the bottles salvaged from the wreckage. Despite their corks having been depressed by water-pressure, these bottles represent a view through the looking glass at the lavish lifestyles of the first-class passengers.
