A rare photograph thought to have been taken aboard the CS Mackay-Bennett on April 24th, 1912.

The Mackay-Bennett was a cable repair ship based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was the first ship on the scene of the Titanic disaster on April 15th.

The ship found so many bodies that it ran out of embalming supplies and, as this photograph shows, was forced to bury 116 of the bodies at sea, being unable to return them to port quickly enough.

Fallopian twinkled. "They accuse us of being paranoids."
"They?" inquired Metzger, twinkling also.
"Us?" asked Oedipa.
