Clothing and effects of Titanic passengers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Stumbled across this site today.

http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org...hp?angle=1-110

It lists the clothing and effects of all of the recovered bodies from the Titanic. It is kind of interesting to read through.

Interesting to see the differences between what the the third and first class passengers were wearing and their personal effects.

It seems like most of those listed are third class passengers or crew members/servants.

I seem to recall that the fatalities were disproportionately lower class passengers.

"Encyclopedia Titanica" is the most misleading internet link I've ever clicked on.
