On Wednesday evening, September 19, at 7:30 PM, the Brookfield Museum and Historical Society will sponsor a multi-media lecture on several mysteries that still surround the Titanic’s sinking.
The program will be held at the Brookfield Museum located at 165 Whisconier Road (Junction of Routes 25 and 133) in Brookfeild Center.
Robert Purssell of Brookfield, a retired engineer and research writer, will address questions such as:
How did the collision actually damage the ship? Why didn’t the Californian come to the Titanic’s rescue?
What efforts did the crew make to save the ship and contain the Titanic’s progressive flooding?
Why and how did the hull fail and break in two?
The program is free and complimentary refreshments will be provided. For more information on this and other program events of the Brookfield Historical Society log onto www.brookfieldcthistory.org.
