In Memory of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's Maiden Voyage
In 1985 Father Edward O'Donnell SJ was searching in the basement at the Irishjesuit Provincial's House when he came across a large black metal trunk, in it he found a large colletion of negative albums, photographs and most amazingly of all an album containing photographs of Titanic's voyage.
All these photographs were the work of Father Francis Browne SJ
who died in 1960 and was almost forgotten by this time. Subsequent investigations revealed he had enjoyed worldwide fame in 1912 when his photographs of the Titanic’s journey to Cobh were published worldwide. He had travelled first class to Cobh having been given a ticket by his uncle Robert Browne, Bishop of Cloyne. His remarkable pictures proved to be unique.http://www.messenger.ie/father-brownes-titanic-album-centenary-edition/2218_p.aspxPS: Today is the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's Maiden Voyage
