More than 100 years after the Titanic set sail on its first - and final - voyage, we're still captivated by this incredible ship and its tragic story.
Historical photos, including ones taken by passengers on the Titanic, paint the ship and its famous disaster in a new light.
1. Building the Titanic
When it set sail on April 10, 1912, the Titanic was the world's largest ship. At 880 feet long and 175 feet high, it took a team of 20 horses just to drag the Titanic's massive anchor, and the ship was under construction for three years.
2. The black mark
While crashing into an iceberg sealed the Titanic's fate, some say it was doomed from the beginning.
Experts believe the black mark in this photo is evidence of a massive coal fire inside the ship's hold. Trying to control the fire may have weaked the Titanic's hull, and made the ship accelerate towards the iceberg.
