The Priest who got off Titanic

Fox has a story about Father Francis Browne, SJ, who was a passenger on the Titanic on the first leg of her voyage, from Southhampton to Cherbourg to Cork, before she sailed towards America (and into history).

More Importantly, Father Browne was an amateur photographer, and took a number of photographs on board Titanic.  His photos, and the memoirs he later wrote about the experience, has been published and is for sale.

A great site that shows the pictures and explains the backstory with just how close Fr. Browne came to death can be found HERE.
