20 Historical Photos That Will Leave You Speechless

1. Last Known Photo of the Titanic, 1912

When you look closely, the last known photo taken of the Titanic gives you a hint as to why the ship eventually sank. As the story goes, the photographer of the photo was an Irish priest, and instead of the iceberg being the reason that the Titanic went down, it was actually because the priest forgot to say a Hail Mary as the Titanic was sailing away.

Three days later, the titanic, which was presumed an unsinkable ship, sank to the bottom of the ocean due to the priest’s mistake. With more than 1,500 passengers’ lives lost, the Titanic showed that the saying “bigger is better” does not apply to the sea. Next are more rare historical photos with amazing stories behind them!
