"Aunque el hundimiento apareció mucho en los noticieros del cine mudo de la época, había muy poco material de archivo de la propia nave.
Esto porque el Titanic no fue una gran noticia antes de hundirse.
Su buque gemelo, el Olympic, le robó protagonismo en su viaje inaugural desde Southampton a Nueva York en 1911. Tenía el mismo capitán que el Titanic, recorrió el mismo camino, tenían las mismas instalaciones de seguridad y el mismo número de botes salvavidas, o los mismos faltantes"
🚢🚢🚢" Although the sinking appeared much in the silent film news of the time, there was very little footage of the ship itself.
This is because the Titanic was not great news before sinking.
Its twin ship, the Olympic, stole the spotlight on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in 1911. It had the same captain as the Titanic, ran the same way, had the same security facilities and the same number of lifeboats, or the same ones missing"

a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
okay let’s rant. THEY ARE FUCKING SOULMATES. Alice has treated Betty like SHIT the entire season and guess who was there for her? Jughead. Alice, her own mother, compared her to her serial killer farther, even after betty feared becoming him. While Jughead, told her the exact opposite. When she opened up about her self harm, he comforted her. When she told him about faking her medication, he told her that they are partners. When she tried digging her nails in, he stopped her. When no one else was clapping for her speech at the jubilee, even Alice, Jughead started clapping for her. When she was scared about what to do with her family falling apart, he comforted her. When she told him about chic, he helped her. Jughead Jones is truly to only person who cares about her🥺
dt: Charlotte bc her constant post on her spam of them make me happy💘 #lilireinhart#lilireinhartedit#bettycooper#bettycooperedit#jugheadjones#jugheadjonesedit#colesprouseedit#colesprouse#bughead#bugheadedit#sprousehart#sprousehartedit#ship#shipedit#jellybeanjones#riverdale#riverdaleedit
Midday on the terrace of the Copacabana Palace with Adelaide and Edith. We are making our way to Adelaide’s suite on the look out for some well needed refreshments. En route, Edith reminisces about the time when, in 1923 for the opening of the hotel, she saw Mistinguett performing here. The presence of the most renown ‘meneuse de revue’ doesn’t surprise me, for the hotel was designed by the French architect Joseph Gire, and its architectural style reminds me of the Negresco in Nice or the Carlton in Cannes. At the exception that here, this vast building provides a backdrop to one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. As we enter Adelaide’s suite, I am drawn to the balcony where the spectacular view of the bay stretches out before my eyes. The reverberations of the sun on the white stone of the building coupled with the silver reflections of the sea scintillating on the nearby horizon force me to squint my eyes, unable to absorb all at once the formidable luminosity of the landscape. Proust wrote that ‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes’ and yet, on this very moment and even though Rio is new to me, Copacabana washes away the colours I had accumulated on my retina like layers of oil paint on a canvas. Thus, it is both in front of a new panorama and with a new set of eyes that I contemplate the mystery of the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Morro do Leme. #writing#oceanliners#oceanlinersspeedandstyle#oceanliner#1930s#sslatlantique#travel#history#fiction#monsieurn#maritime#ship#paquebot#interiordesign#architecture#interiordecorating#monsieurn#story#writersofinstagram#theliteralscript#authorsofinstagram#novel#literature#copacobana
