An Earnest Price Exhibition
150 Grave Stories from the Titanic
Of the 1,517 people who perished from the Titanic disaster, the largest number of graves are located in three Halifax cemeteries. After 100 years, Danson Danushevsky’s tombstones photographs bring together those 150 victims on a 33 foot wall in the Museum of the North Atlantic in Halifax. The museum looks towards the harbour where three ships unloaded 209 bodies a century ago.
Passengers on the Titanic paid an earnest price with their lives. A 1st class ticket of $50,000, equivalent in today’s standards, was then an earnest price to cross the Atlantic. Ernest Price was a 17-year-old barman from London who went down with the ship.
The exhibition runs until July 2, 2012 at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, 1675 Lower Water Street Halifax, NS B3J 1S3 (902) 424-7490
