Titanic lifeboat D, awaiting rescue by the RMS Carpathia.


This looks like one of the 4 collapsible Engelhardt lifeboats aboard the Titanic. It was designed to carry 47 people, but I count not more than 30 people in the picture.

Dreadnought in dazzle camouflage, it works not by offering concealment but by making it difficult to estimate a target’s range, speed and heading; ca. 1919

Useful back when the world was in black and white. Once color was invented, camouflage began taking on a different look.


This picture perfectly sums up everything about Louisiana.
