Once Upon A Titanic

These large concrete and marble winged things sit just inside the pier gate where the Carpathia once docked, disboarding survivors of the Titanic. The pair have stood watch for years, silent sentinels to time and disaster past.

It's as if these things were somehow transported through time, relics of a tragedy.

They certainly have a look of 'being there since the beginning' about them, the design on them is fascinating..

I'm surprised no one took these, even if they were really heavy. I can imagine someone hailing down a cab with one.

Did they fall over recently?

Beautiful shot. Perhaps the can be used again but as a memento it is also nice.

Roseann said...

I always thought they were relics from the old West Side Highway that was taken down. Anyone know any different?

Caregiver said...

They almost look art deco, but were too early. How marvelous to find these treasures and share them as you do. Thank you. gin

Rob said...

Looks like they have been there a while. A shame they are not in use.

More interesting history! Should I be surprised that NYC is willing to give space to a sort of impromptu memorial?

They're sitting on metal tubbing and have ties holding them in place. I'm assuming your description represents their past. And now they are being relocated - Why else the harness?
