Titanic: The captain's luxurious bath

Among the Titanic wreckage are some strangely pristine reminders of life on board the world's greatest ship.

One of the finest is Captain Edward Smith's bath, a marvellous piece of plumbing which delivered hot and cold, fresh and salt, water to the occupant.

Discovered during a 2010 expedition to the site to establish salvage rights, and snapped courtesy of a remote controlled submersible vehicle, the bathtub looks as if, after a wash and brush up, it could still do the job.
