The Real "Ma" and "Pa": 20 Rare and Amazing Vintage Photographs That Show What The People From ‘Little House On The Prairie’ Really Looked Like: The Little House on the Prairie books series is a children’s literature classic that’s not only entertaining, but provides a unique snapshot of life in the Midwestern United States at a time when that area was rapidly changing. Little House on the Prairie has a special place in the hearts of Americans and many others around the world. Laura Ingalls Wilder’s stories, based on her real-life experience of growing up amid the hardships of the Midwest during the late 19th century, have struck a chord with generations of readers and viewers. Though the book series and the popular TV show based on it are fictional, they draw heavily on author Laura Ingalls Wilder’s real life and family. Take a look at these rare photos of the people behind the timeless stories... 1. 1860: The Real "Ma" and "Pa" Charles and Caroline Ingalls, the original "Ma" and "Pa" from Little House on the Prairie, on their wedding day on February 1, 1860. Charles was born in 1836 and spent the majority of his youth in the tallgrass prairie of Campton Township, just west of Elgin, Illinois. He met and quickly married a 21-year old Caroline Lake Quiner, who was working as a schoolteacher at the time, and they made a home in Pepin County, Wisconsin. They had their first daughter, Mary Amelia, in January, 1865, followed by the birth of Laura in February, 1867. Despite being a high-spirited, outgoing man, Charles wasn't much for people, and he had an insatiable wanderlust. In 1869, before Laura was two years old, he packed up the family and moved to Missouri, then to a town near what is now Independence, Kansas, where their third daughter, Carrie, would be born in 1870. 2. Carrie, Mary, and Laura Ingalls, ca. 1882 From left to right: Carrie, Mary, and Laura Ingalls around 1882. Mary had lost her sight three years earlier. The young family would soon realize that the Kansas land wasn't open to settlers, so over the next few years, they spent time in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Grace Pearl was born in May, 1877, and the family was struggling to make ends meet. In 1879, Charles accepted a job as a clerk and bookkeeper with the railroad in Dakota Territory, which sparked the move to the town of De Smet in 1880. The following winter's terrible storms and conditions would be the basis for the novel, The Long Winter. 3. Laura in De Smet, 1884 Laura in 1884 at age 17 Laura quickly got involved with life in the newly-formed (and growing) town of De Smet. She attended school, made friends, and obtained her teaching certificate, which enabled her to begin teaching in 1882, a full two months before her 16th birthday! At the same time, she began courting Almanzo Wilder, a young homesteader whom she called "Manly". Though 10 years her senior, Almanzo fell deeply in love with Laura and would drive her back and forth between De Smet and the town where se was teaching 12 miles away. They married in 1885 and settled on the Wilder's claim and began their life as farmers. 4. Laura and Almanzo, ca. 1885-86 Laura and Almanzo in their first year of marriage, likely 1885 or 1886. 5. The Ingalls Family in 1891 From left to right: Caroline ("Ma"), Carrie, Laura, Charles ("Pa"), Grace, and Mary. The family took 1890 and 1891 to rest and recover, and the photos from a studio session in 1891 shows that Laura was of good health and vitality at the end of her rest. 6. Laura in 1891 This early 1891 portrait of Laura captures that she had returned to good health. Almanzo still was struggling, but Laura helped them continue work, and they kept their ears to the ground for new opportunities. 7. Portrait of Laura and Almanzo, 1891 In October, 1891, Laura, Almanzo, and a young Rose traveled to Florida in hopes that the warm weather would be better for Almanzo's health and farming. You can tell from the photo above that Laura certainly didn't love it; indeed, she could barely tolerate the humidity and weather, and the family moved back to De Smet, South Dakota in August 1892. 8. Laura, ca. 1898 A young Laura Ingalls Wilder on the porch of her rented home in Mansfield, Missouri around 1898. After a short time back in De Smet after the disastrous trip to Florida, the family quickly made way to Mansfield, Missouri by covered wagon. Almanzo put a $100 down payment to buy 40 acres of hilly, rocky land that Laura would name "Rocky Ridge Farm". This farm would eventually be expanded and serve as the couple's home for the rest of their lives. Labels: 1800s, 1900s, 1910s, culture, famous people, life, portraits.

ALIMENTOS QUE AYUDAN A PREVENIR EL ALZHEIMER
 
03:41
Los primeros síntomas del Alzheimer suelen aparecer luego de los 60 años, sin embargo, en personas con predisposición genética se presentarían alrededor de los 40. Algunas señales de alarma son olvidos frecuentes, dificultad para resolver problemas cotidianos, desorientación, dificultad para expresarse y cambios de humor y personalidad. ¡Mantén tu cerebro activo! De acuerdo con científicos de la Universidad de California en San Diego, aprender otros idiomas y llevar a cabo actividades como los juegos de destreza mental ayudarían a mantener el cerebro saludable por más tiempo, contrarrestando los efectos de las enfermedades neurodegenerativas. 1. Cítricos Las propiedades antioxidantes de la vitamina C evitarían la acumulación de los compuestos dañinos en las células del cerebro, haciendo de esta vitamina un nutriente útil para prevenir el Alzheimer. 2. Té verde Al ser digerido, el té verde libera diversos antioxidantes que serían útiles para evitar la acumulación de proteínas en el cerebro y reducir la oxidación que sufren las neuronas, lo cual ayudaría a prevenir problemas de memoria y demencia. 3. Curry El curry se produce a base de cúrcuma, que es rica en curcumina, un poderoso antioxidante. Según la Dra. Sally Frautschy, de la Universidad de California en Los Angeles, La curcumina sería útil para prevenir el Alzheimer, pues ha demostrado ser efectiva para eliminar y evitar la formación de la placa amiloide, principal causante de la enfermedad. 4. Café El café evitaría la acumulación en el cerebro de las proteínas que dañan a las neuronas, por lo que sería útil para prevenir el Alzheimer e incluso para ralentizar su progreso en pacientes que ya presentan síntomas. 5. Vino El alcohol tiene propiedades antiinflamatorias, por lo que tomar una copa al día ayudaría a evitar la inflamación del tejido cerebral, condición relacionada con la aparición de Alzheimer y otras formas de demencia. 6. Moras y bayas Según la Dr. Barbara Shukitt-Hale, de la Universidad Tufts, El cerebro requiere mucho oxígeno para funcionar, por lo que las neuronas están expuestas a muchos radicales libres, lo que puede dañarlas; no obstante, las moras y bayas son ricas en flavonoides, antioxidantes que evitarían este daño, reduciendo el riesgo de demencia. 7. Vitamina D La vitamina D3 estimularía al sistema inmune para que eliminara las proteínas beta-amiloide, causantes del daño neuronal vinculado con el Alzheimer; así, mantener un buen nivel de esta vitamina serviría para prevenir la enfermedad. 8. Chocolate El chocolate oscuro mejoraría las habilidades cognitivas y evitaría la aparición de Alzheimer y otras formas de demencia: Esto se debería a los flavonoles que contiene, los cuales mejorarían el flujo de sangre al cerebro manteniendo a las neuronas sanas. 9. Vitamina B Un consumo adecuado de Vitaminas B6 y B12 ayudaría a reducir el encogimiento del cerebro relacionado con el Alzheimer: según el Dr. David Smith, de la Universidad de Oxford, esto se debería a que La vitamina B reduciría los niveles de homocisteína en la sangre, una sustancia nociva para el cerebro que propiciaría su encogimiento y deterioro.

40 RARE PHOTOS OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN HISTORY
 
05:48
Photography provides a snapshot of what has happened in history. It captures events that have shaped the world we live in. Some of the images seize a moment of pure joy such as the end of World War II to proof that during Christmas Eve on December 24, 1914 German and English soldiers called for an unofficial truce until after Christmas Day. Some photographs also show the anguish of people during challenging times. The despair of Marilyn Lovell, wife Apollo 13’s commander Jim Lovell and a little girl holding her doll after a London bombing in 1940, are all too visceral reminders of the human condition. No matter what the subject is being photographed, images provide a glimpse into a time and place we may know little about, but they evoke powerful emotions within us as we all laugh, cry, and connect together. Furthermore, it is in photographs that we have the ability to gain immortality.

03:09
15 Only Surviving Photos Of Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars: In 1815, Napoléon Bonaparte and his Grande Armée were finally defeated during the Battle of Waterloo. Even after Napoléon’s death in 1821, the warriors who fought with him continued to revere him and pay their respects every 5th of May — the anniversary of his death. Wearing the uniforms they fought in, complete with epaulettes, medals, sashes, plumes and swords, the proud veterans marched to Paris’ Place Vendôme to pay homage to the Emperor. It was during one of these occasions that these photographs were taken, possibly in 1858, when these men were well into their 70s and 80s. These are their only surviving images. 1. Grenadier Burg, 24th Regiment of the Guard, 1815. 2. Monsieur Mauban, 8th Dragoon Regiment, 1815. 3. Monsieur Moret, 2nd Regiment, 1814-15. 4. Monsieur Ducel Mameluke de la Garde, 1813-1815. 5.

Credit: Brown University Library. “The base and railings of the column of the Place Vendôme appear this day decked out with the annual offerings to the memory of the man whose statue adorns the summit. The display of garlands of immortelles, and other tributes of the kind, is greater than usual…the old soldiers of the Empire performed their usual homage yesterday at the same place.” – as noted by the Times of London in May 1855.

26 PORTRAITS OF NATIVE AMERICAN TEEN GIRLS FROM BETWEEN THE 1870S AND 1890S
 
04:01
26 Beautiful Portraits of Native American Teen Girls From Between the 1870s and 1890s: The Native American Indians are an important part of the culture of the United States. While their people have lived on this land for thousands of years, today their numbers are dwindling. Once, the Native Americans lived on this continent with little discourse and disruption. They were well fed, content, and established. In fact, the men and women usually were placed in typical roles. Each of these beautiful portraits of Native American girls were taken from between the 1870s and 1890s. The images have been well preserved and it gives us a tiny window into the past where we can admire these women, their unique style, and show respect for their lives. Although Native American women often had different roles than the men they were greatly respected. They often had the same sorts of rights at the men in their tribe which is incredible for the time period. In some groups, women were the ones who owned the home and property inside. While it was typical for a chief to be male there were some tribes that would have the women select who he would be. Labels: 1800s, culture, girls, portraits, teenager

HÁBITOS QUE MATAN NEURONAS
 
02:08
A continuación hábitos que matan nuestras neuronas y las razones: 1. No Desayunar. La gente que no desayuna tiene bajo nivel de azúcar en la sangre. Esto genera insuficiente suministro de nutrientes al cerebro causando su degeneración paulatina. 2.Comer de más. Esto causa el endurecimiento de las arterias del cerebro, causando además baja capacidad mental. 3. Fumar. Causa la disminución del ta maño cerebral y promueve además Alzheimer. 4. Consumir altas cantidades de azúcar. El alto consumo de azúcar interrumpe la absorción de proteínas y nutrientes causando malnutrición y puede interferir en el desarrollo del cerebro. 5. Inhalar aire contaminado. El cerebro es el más grande consumidor de oxígeno del cuerpo. Inhalar aire contaminado disminuye su oxigenación generando una disminución de la eficiencia cerebral. 6. Dormir poco. El dormir permite al cerebro descansar. La falta de sueño por periodos prolongados acelera la pérdida de células del cerebro. 7 Dormir con la cabeza cubierta. Dormir con la cabeza cubierta aumenta la concentración de dióxido de carbono y disminuye el oxígeno causando efectos adversos a nuestro cerebro. 8. Hacer trabajar al cerebro cuando estamos enfermos. Trabajar y estudiar cuando estás enfermo además de la dificultad del cerebro para responder en ese estado, lo daña. 9. Falta de estimulación: Pensar es la mejor manera de estimular nuestro cerebro; no hacerlo provoca que el cerebro disminuya su tamaño y por lo tanto su capacidad.

13 PHOTOS OF ROCK STARS OF THE 1960S AND 1970S AT HOME WITH THEIR PARENTS
 
03:17
Awesome Portrait Photos of Rock Stars of the 1960s and 1970s at Home With Their Parents: They had fame, reams of money and fans willing to do wild, unmentionable things just to breathe the same air — but in its September 24, 1971 issue, LIFE magazine illustrated a different side of the lives of rock stars. Like other mere mortals, they often came from humble backgrounds, with moms and dads who bragged about them, fussed over them, called them on their nonsense and worried about them every single day. Assigned to take portraits of the artists at home with their sweetly square folks, photographer John Olson traveled from the suburbs of London to Brooklyn to the Bay Area, capturing in his work the love that bridged any cultural and generational divides that existed between his subjects. Here's a gallery of Rock legends -- Clapton, Zappa, Elton John, Grace Slick and more -- and their totally square, totally sweet parents. 1. Frank Zappa in his Los Angeles home with his dad, Francis, his mom, Rosemarie, and his cat in 1970. 2. The Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick poses with her mother, Virginia Wing, in the living room of the home where she grew up in Palo Alto, California in 1970. 3. In one of the photos that ultimately ran in LIFE (photographer John Olson went back to Palo Alto for a re-shoot), new mom Grace dangles her daughter China by the feet in 1971. 4. In 1970 Rose Clapp shows off her tea service and Eric Clapton, her rock-god guitarist grandson, Surrey, England. 5. The former Reggie Dwight, later known as Elton John, laughs with his mom Sheila Fairebrother and her husband Fred (whom he affectionately called "Derf," Fred spelled backwards) in their suburban London apartment in 1970. 6. David Crosby with his father, 1970. 7. Ginger Baker and his mum, 1970. 8. Ginger Baker, the Cream and Blind Faith drummer, flashes a rare smile with his mother Ruby Streatfield inside her rowhouse in Bexley, outside London, in 1970. 9. Joe Cocker with his mother, 1970. 10. Grace steps outside with her mom and little China in 1971. 11. Richie Havens with his parents, Brooklyn in 1970. 12. The Jackson 5 with their parents standing by, 13-year-old dynamo Michael (front left) and his brothers Jackie, Marlon, Tito and Jermaine straddle their motorbikes by the pool, 1970. 13. Scottish folk musician Donovan and his parents, Donald and Winifred Leitch, England in 1970. Labels: 1970s, culture, famous people, life, music, portraits

22 PHOTOS OF MATA HARI: DUTCH EXOTIC DANCER, COURTESAN AND NOTORIOUS WWI SPY FROM 1905-1917
 
05:28
Mournful Fate of Mata Hari, and 22 Stunning Photos of This Dutch Exotic Dancer, Courtesan and Notorious WWI Spy from 1905-1917: "What happened after that is still a matter of controversy amongst historians. According to the version later presented by the French prosecutors (and confirmed in 1970 by documents released from the German archives), Mata Hari was approached in 1914 by the German consul in Holland and offered a large sum of money to wheedle military information out of her many army officer lovers and pass it on to the embassy. Hari’s story at her trial was that she took the money from the Germans because she needed it (the war having wrecked her dancing career), but she never intended to pass on any information. British intelligence soon compiled their own dossier on her, noting that she spoke several languages, had many French, English and German military officers as companions, and, as a neutral Dutch citizen, was in a position to travel freely and pass secret information to the Germans. Two undercover security officers were assigned to keep an eye on her. By most accounts, the investigation produced abundant evidence of a long string of lovers (one of whom, amazingly, was a high official in the intelligence service), but found no definite proof that Mata Hari was passing secrets to the Germans."

It's a legendary nightclub with as much intrigue surrounding it as the late seventies itself: It was a time when art, culture, music, and nightlife came together in a perfect storm of (often) drug-fueled disco dancing and depravity. Owned by entrepreneur Steve Rubell, the club had a reputation for getting down and dirty, all the while hosting some of the era's most famous faces.

TÉCNICAS PARA SUPERAR LAS OFENSAS [EGO]
 
03:41
Las personas se la pasan la mayor parte de su vida sintiéndose ofendidas por lo que alguien les hizo. La sorprendente revelación que te voy a hacer, va a cambiar tu vida… ¡Nadie te ha ofendido! Son tus expectativas de lo que esperabas de esas personas, las que te hieren. Y las expectativas las creas tú con tus pensamientos. No son reales. Son imaginarias. Si tu esperabas que tus padres te dieran más amor y no te lo dieron, no tienes por qué sentirte ofendido. Son tus expectativas de lo que un padre ideal debió hacer contigo, las que fueron violadas. Y tus ideas son las que te lastiman. Las personas son un río caudaloso. Cualquier intento de atraparlas te va a lastimar. Ámalas, disfrútalas y déjalas ir. Entonces ¿CÓMO PUEDO PERDONAR? 1) Entiende que nadie te ha ofendido. Son tus ideas acerca de cómo deberían actuar las personas, las que te hieren. Estas ideas son producto de una máscara social, que has aprendido desde tu infancia de forma inconsciente. Reconoce que la mayoría de las personas NUNCA va a cuadrar con esas ideas que tienes. Porque ellos tienen las suyas. 2) Deja a las personas ser. Deja que guíen su vida como mejor les plazca. Es su responsabilidad. Dales consejos si te los piden, pero permite que tomen sus decisiones. Es su derecho divino por nacimiento: el libre albedrío y la libertad. 3) Nadie te pertenece. Ni tus padres, ni amigos ni parejas. Todos formamos parte del engranaje de la naturaleza. Deja fluir las cosas sin resistirte a ellas. Vive y deja vivir. 4) Deja de pensar demasiado. Ábrete a la posibilidad de nuevas experiencias. No utilices tu inventario. Abre los ojos y observa el fluir de la vida como es. Cuando limpias tu visión de lentes obscuros y te los quitas, el resultado es la limpieza de visión. 5) Intoxícate con la vida. La vida real es más hermosa y excitante que cualquier idea que tienes del mundo. Me complacerá decírtelo por experiencia. 6) Imagina a esa persona que te ofendió en el pasado. Imagínate que ambos están cómodamente sentados. Dile por qué te ofendió. Escucha su explicación amorosa de por qué lo hizo. Y perdónala. Si un ser querido ya no está en este mundo, utiliza esta dinámica para decirle lo que quieres. Escucha su respuesta. Y dile adiós. Te dará una enorme paz. 7) A la luz del corto período de vida que tenemos, solo tenemos tiempo para vivir, disfrutar y ser felices. Nuestra compañera la muerte en cualquier momento, de forma imprevista, nos puede tomar entre sus brazos. Es superfluo e inútil gastar el tiempo en pensar en las ofensas de otros. No puedes darte ese lujo. 8.) Es natural pasar por un periodo de duelo al perdonar, deja que tu herida sane. Descárgate (no confundir con desquítate) con alguien para dejar fluir el dolor. Vuelve a leer este artículo las veces necesarias y deja que los conceptos empiecen a sembrar semillas de conciencia en tu interior. Aprende con honestidad los errores que cometiste, prométete que no lo volverás a hacer y regresa a vivir la vida. Marco Engelke (Fragmento)

21 RARE VINTAGE PHOTOS OF CHRISTMAS FROM THE VICTORIAN ERA
 
04:03
20 Rare Vintage Photos of Christmas from the Victorian Era: It's hard to imagine now, but at the beginning of the 19th century Christmas was hardly celebrated. Many businesses did not even consider it a holiday. However by the end of the century it had become the biggest annual celebration and took on the form that we recognize today. The transformation happened quickly, and came from all sectors of society. Many attribute the change to Queen Victoria, and it was her marriage to the German-born Prince Albert that introduced some of the most prominent aspects of Christmas. In 1848 the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the royal family celebrating around a decorated Christmas tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert's childhood in Germany. Soon every home in Britain had a tree bedecked with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts. 1. A family’s Christmas, 1897. 2. The Night Before Christmas, 1898. 3.

40 PHOTOS AERIAL WARFARE OF WORLD WAR I
 
08:08
40 Amazing Vintage Photographs Captured Aerial Warfare of World War I: World War I was the first major conflict to see widespread use of powered aircraft -- invented barely more than a decade before the fighting began. Airplanes, along with kites, tethered balloons, and zeppelins gave all major armies a new tactical platform to observe and attack enemy forces from above. Over the course of the war, the role of the military aviator progressed from one of mere observation to a deadly offensive role. Early on, pilots would would fly off armed only with pistols (or completely unarmed) -- by 1918, fighter planes and massive bombers were in use, armed with multiple machine guns and devastating explosive payloads. Aerial photography developed into an indispensable tool to guide artillery attacks and assess damage afterward. The pilots of these new aircraft took tremendous risks -- vulnerable to enemy fire, at the mercy of the weather, flying new, often experimental aircraft. Crashes were frequent, and many paid with their lives. These 45 amazing vintage photographs of the Great War tell the story of the conflict, and how much it affected the world. 1. A French SPAD S.XVI two-seat biplane reconnaissance aircraft, flying over Compeign Sector, France ca. 1918. Note the zig-zag patterns of defensive trenches in the fields below.

British Handley-Page bombers on a mission, Western Front, during World War I. This photograph, which appears to have been taken from the cabin of a Handley-Page bomber, is attributed to Tom Aitken. It shows another Handley-Page bomber setting out on a bombing mission. The model 0/400 bomber, which was introduced in 1918, could carry 2,000 lbs (907 kilos) of bombs and could be fitted with four Lewis machine-guns. (Tom Aitken/National Library of Scotland) 4. German soldiers attend to a stack of gas canisters attached to a manifold, inflating a captive balloon on the Western front. (National Archives/Official German Photograph) 5. A German Type Ae 800 observation balloon ascending. (Brett Butterworth) 6. A captured German Taube monoplane, on display in the courtyard of Les Invalides in Paris, in 1915. The Taube was a pre-World War I aircraft, only briefly used on the front lines, replaced later by newer designs. (Bibliotheque nationale de France) 7. A soldier poses with a Hythe Mk III Gun Camera during training activities at Ellington Field, Houston, Texas in April of 1918. The Mk III, built to match the size, handling, and weight of a Lewis Gun, was used to train aerial gunners, recording a photograph when the trigger was pulled, for later review, when an instructor could coach trainees on better aiming strategies. (Harry Kidd/WWI Army Signal Corps Photograph Collection) 8. Lieutenant Kirk Booth of the U.S. Signal Corps being lifted skyward by the giant Perkins man-carrying kite at Camp Devens, Ayer, Massachusetts. While the United States never used these kites during the war, the German and French armies put some to use on the front lines. (U.S. National Archives) 9. Wreckage of a German Albatross D. III fighter biplane. (Library of Congress) 10. Unidentified pilot wearing a type of breathing apparatus. Image taken by O.I.C Photographic Detachment, Hazelhurst Field, Long Island, New York.

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE TITANIC SANK...? IN 25 HAUNTING PHOTOS
 
03:33
What Happened AFTER The Titanic Sank… In 29 Haunting Photos. We're all familiar with the story of the Titanic: At 11:39 p.m. on April 14, 1912, a young lookout named Frederick Fleet spotted an iceberg. His ship was headed straight for it. The Titanic made impact, and two hours and 40 minutes later, the boat was lost to the ocean forever. 2,224 people were on board. Only 700 survived. It's a tragedy that has stuck in our minds more than a century, but we're likely unfamiliar with the real faces of the people who survived it. In the images below, we see what the immediate aftermath of the tragedy looked like, from New York all the way to the UK. 1. Here's a shot of the iceberg that sank the Titanic. 2. Frederick Fleet, 24, was the lookout who first spotted the iceberg. 3. After the iceberg hit, the passengers lucky enough to get a seat in a lifeboat sailed toward the rescue boat, the Carpathia. 4. John B. Thayer created this sketch while he was on a capsized lifeboat. The drawing was later filled in by P.L. Skidmore aboard the Carpathia. 5. Here, survivors sit aboard the Carpathia. 6. There, they huddled for warmth and tried to make sense of what happened. 7. After news of the accident hit land, people waited outside the offices of the White Star Line in New York. 8. Crowds stood in the rain awaiting the arrival of the Carpathia. 9. The Titanic's lifeboats were finally returned to the berth of the White Star Line. 10. Here's the surviving crew of the Titanic. 11. Here, surviving stewards line up outside a first class waiting room before being called in for questioning by a board of enquiry. 12. These are the four Pascoe brothers, all crew who survived the sinking. 13. Back in the UK, family and friends waited on a railway platform as survivors of the Titanic arrive at Southampton. 14. It was a bittersweet scene, as many knew that some of their family members hadn't survived. 15. Here, relatives of the crew wait for their arrival in Southampton. 16. In this image, we see survivors finally reunited with their relatives. 17. One surviving crew member kissed his wife upon arriving at Plymouth. 18. Here, a crowd in Devonport, UK gathered to hear a survivor tell his story. 19. District secretary of the National Sailors and Firemen's Union, awards shipwreck pay to survivors. 20. The aftermath of the sinking involved plenty of official inquiries as well. Here, wireless operator Harold Thomas Coffin is questioned by a Senate committee at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. 21. It was internationally famous news. Here, a survivor gives a woman an autograph. 22. In fact, requests for autographs from survivors happened quite often. 23. These were initially unidentified survivors Michel, 4 and Edmond Navratil, 2. To board the ship, their father assumed the name Louis Hoffman and used their nicknames, Lolo and Mamon. 24. In this image, we see them reunited with their mother. 25. Finally, this touching image depicts Lucien P. Smith, Jr. His mother Eloise was pregnant with him while returning from honeymoon aboard the Titanic. Lucien's father died in the disaster. In a bittersweet twist of fate, Eloise later married a fellow survivor.
