This photo is quite possibly the only known photographic evidence of the actual iceberg that sank the Titanic. Of course nobody had bothered to photograph it while the ship was sinking, so it’s impossible to be sure. But this photograph was taken the day after the collision and in the same area, and it features not only the evidence of a strike: It also has a streak of red paint.
