Thursday 11th April, 1912, Titanic at the anchorage, Queenstown, Eire just off Rochas Point. Two tenders, “Ireland” and “America” assist. As a passenger tender was passing the stern of RMS Titanic a coal-blackened figure could be seen emerging from the fourth funnel.
A horrified gasp went round the passengers, some saying that it was the “Angel of Death” and a bad omen. In fact it was a coal-blackened stoker who had climbed the inside of the dummy funnel in order to get a birds eye view of the scenes below.
