The Titanic Sinks Jigsaw Puzzle

The history of the RMS Titanic is one that most of us are familiar with and is one that the world will never forget. On April 15, 1912, the cruise ship or passenger liner as they were called then, The Titanic sunk in the North Atlantic after a fateful collision with an iceberg. More than 1,500 people perished that night and, for more than 100 years, scientists and historians have attempted to determine what sent the Titanic to her watery grave.

They have told her story through an endless succession of books, movies and documentary films. They have told of the actual ship and of both those on board who lost their lives and those on board who survived.

For professional and amateur Titanic enthusiasts, there is no end to the quest for information. They eagerly pick up these new books and films, they recreate her food and fashion and some of them even retrace the Titanic's path on the Atlantic wanting to learn more about a time and an event happened more than a century ago.

Personally, I find working a jigsaw puzzle of the Titanic rewarding and I have worked a few. Of course, I love doing jigsaw puzzles in general but a Titanic one is different somehow. It is a little bit more sombre, giving pause to think a bit more about the events that unfolded on that tragic day.

The jigsaw puzzle shown here is called "Titanic Sinks." It is a 500-piece puzzle depicting the front page of the New York Times as it appeared the morning after the disaster, April 16, 1912. The newspapers of the time scrambled to find news of the event to report. It is said that some even made up news in order to have something to print in their papers and that at least one even reported that the Titanic was afloat and struggling into port and that all aboard were rescued...

Unfortunately, we all know that was not true and the headline from the New York Times newspaper page as shown on this Titanic jigsaw puzzle screams news that is at least somewhat more accurate, "Titanic Sinks Four Hours After Hitting Iceberg; 866 Rescued by Carpathia, Probably 1250 Perish; Ismay Safe, Mrs. Astor Maybe; Noted Names Missing."

3D Titanic Jigsaw Puzzle

It seems appropriate that there should be a 3D jigsaw puzzle of the Titanic. I am not a fan of 3D puzzles myself but I know others, including my 20-year old son, who actually prefer them to ‘standard’ jigsaw puzzles.

Titanic Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

It also seems appropriate that there should be a handsome wooden jigsaw puzzle of the Titanic as is this one by Wentworth. It features the famous poster from the White Star Line that shows both The Titanic and The Olympic, the Titanic’s sister ship.

      Yes, I just went to the Titanic museum and I learned so much. 500 pieces for a puzzle is perfect and this would be a great gift.
