25 Oct

John and Nelle Snyder, Titanic survivors, on April 18, 1912, the day they disembarked the Carpathia.

The images were made by John and Nelle Snyder, newlyweds who were celebrating their honeymoon aboard the Titanic. After being kept in the possession of the Snyder family for 99 years, the photos (along with some letters written on Titanic stationery) are expected to fetch over $50,000 when they’re auctioned on October 21st by Philip Weiss Auctions.
