My sister sent me a link to a cool Titanic exhibit that's going on in Atlanta. It's called "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit."
It includes some cool things I'd love to check out, including a reconstructed first-class cabin!
It would be cool to travel to various Titanic exhibits around the world. But I barely need to.
Here in Cedar Rapids, there's not one but TWO Titanic exhibits! There's the one at Brucemore, that I visited earlier. And there's one at our History Center--I went there with my husband Bruce yesterday.
The exhibit's theme is "Cedar Rapids in 1912," and it is very small. Along one wall are Titanic items, and along another, some photos and clothing items from Cedar Rapids at the turn of that century.
The Titanic items included
a model Titanic in a glass case:
Very pretty. Near it was one of those plans of the ship that one can order online--looks kinda like this:
There were also some Titanic dishes--these were replicas. People seem obsessed with the dishes!
I liked the clothing from the time period that they had on display.
Of course, when I saw the tux, I thought of the last glimpse Mahala Douglas had of her husband, standing on the deck of the ship in his formal suit, overcoat, and top hat, with a heavy blanket over his arm.
Maybe my sister should come to Cedar Rapids for some Titanic-ing.
