Caption: Titanic Memorial, Washington DC. RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of 14 April 1912 in the North Atlantic during its maiden voyage, and sank with the loss of 1517 lives. Following custom, women and children were loaded into the lifeboats before the men. Commissioned by the Women's Titanic Memorial Association, this granite statue in south-west Washington DC, USA, honours the men who died that women and children might be saved. The 4-metre-tall male figure was designed by US sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and carved by John Horrigan. It was unveiled on 26 May 1931. Photographed in 2008.
