Iceberg, upper deck of the 'Titanic', and Mansion House fund, April 20, 1912. 'The Iceberg Above and Below the Water' - illustration showing the relative proportions - normally about a tenth of the volume of an iceberg is above water - with a ship for scale. 'The Upper Deck of the Titanic', and 'Mansion House Fund Opened for the Widows and Children of Titanic Sailors'. The Lord Mayor of London sets up a fund to help families of crew who died in the disaster. The White Star Line ship RMS 'Titanic' struck an iceberg in thick fog off Newfoundland on 14 April 1912. She was the largest and most luxurious ocean liner of her time, and thought to be unsinkable. In the collision, five of her watertight compartments were compromised and she sank. Out of the 2228 people on board, only 705 survived. A major cause of the loss of life was the insufficient number of lifeboats she carried.
