The only known photo of the iceberg that destroyed the Titanic has surfaced! A century after the ship went down, a picture showing the iceberg floating on a still and frozen horizon is up for auction.

The black-and-white shot was taken less than 10 hours after the ship crashed into the Iceberg.

Passenger Mabel Fenwick captured the floating ice mass on the RMS Carpathia, which plucked 705 survivors from lifeboats and ferried them to Manhattan.

The Iceberg can be seen on the right side of the photo, and the hull of one of the Titanic’s lifeboats can be also seen in the top right corner of the historic image below:
