Porthole recovered from the seabed

11-Porthole-Titanic78.jpgTake a peek at one of Titanic’s actual portholes recovered from the bottom of the Atlantic. By looking at the way the sides of the frame are clipped vertically to fit properly, we know that this is likely a porthole from the Third Class section of the ship. The size and construction of the 9 different kinds of portholes on Titanic were strictly regulated by the Board of Trade to make sure everyone on board had plenty of light and air on their journey.
