As the tragedy of the RMS Titanic unfolded, there were only a few photographers who captured what was happening. One of them was 17-year-old Bernice Palmer who was traveling aboard RMS Carpathia, the ship that rescued the survivors of the Titanic.
When survivors began to climb aboard, Palmer was there with her Brownie camera, documenting the aftermath of one of the most tragic ship disasters in history.

*"Margaret described her experience in the Newport Herald, "I stretched on the brass bed, at the side of which was a lamp. So completely absorbed in my reading I gave little thought to the crash that struck at my window overhead and threw me to the floor. "
After the crash, Margaret (Molly Brown) heard increasing confusion in the hall causing her to investigate further. "I again looked out and saw a man whose face was blanched, his eyes protruding, wearing the look of a haunted creature. He was gasping for breath and in an undertone he gasped, 'get your life saver'." After helping fellow passengers she was taken a hold of and with the words "you are going too" was dropped four feet into the lowering lifeboat #6.
Lifeboat #6 was equipped to hold 65 passengers. However, it pushed off from Titanic with 21 women, 2 men and a twelve-year-old boy on board. The women in the lifeboat rowed for hours. At 4:30 a.m. Margaret saw a flash of light. It was from the approaching ship Carpathia, which was the first to answer the distress call. After some difficulty, lifeboat #6 pulled up along side of the Carpathia, and the occupants were pulled aboard one at a time." * From mollybrown.org

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
