RNLI lifeboat Arab I at the quay, Padstow, Cornwall. 1883-1900
The lifeboat Arab I under sail off the quay at Padstow with the railway yards in the background. The lifeboat has a full compliment of women and children passengers with a good sized crowd of onlookers on the quay. It is noticeable that the crew of the Lifeboat are wearing cork life jackets, however, the passengers are not. RNLI Arab I (34 foot x 8 foot) was a gift from Mr R.A.B. Preston who had been saved from his yacht Arab. She was wrecked on 11th April 1900, without any loss of crew, while assisting the Lowestoft trawler Peace and Plenty. The steam lifeboat, James Stevens No 4, was also lost on the same night, together with eight members of her crew. Three crew members of the Peace and Plenty also lost their lives.

View of the luxurious reading room onboard the Titanic
A view of one of the many luxurious interior features of the Titanic; the reading and writing room. First class passengers travelled in style onboard the Titanic, having free use of the gym, the Parisian caf and the swimming pool. Built by the shipyard Harland and Wolff for White Star Lines, the liner was almost identical to her sister ship, 'Olympic' and was a rival to Cunard's 'Lusitania' and 'Mauretania'. On her maiden voyage across the Atlantic, the Titanic struck an iceberg on 15th April 1912 and sank with the loss of 1503 lives"
