It was here on the bridge of Titanic that crewmen tried to steer the ship away from the iceberg that tore her open and sent her to the seafloor in the early hours of April 15, 1912. The lone telemotor (above)—a steering mechanism that held the ship's wheel—is flanked by commemorative plaques and plastic flowers left by visitors in the years since the wreck was discovered in 1985.
