October 19, 1915. The port side of the ship. Shackleton, seen leaning over the side, called this photograph “The beginning of the End.” With the roar of pressure in his ears Shackleton was struck by the surreal incongruity between the serene beauty of the day and the death throes of his ship; from the bridge, he had seen how the pressure was actually bending her like a bow.
