For some reason today I’m really jazzed about side-scan sonar imagery.  I don’t know if you were anything like me as a kid (Lord I hope not), but I loved to watch those stupid Discovery Channel shows with titles like GHOSTS: CAUGHT ON TAPE?!  Anyway, this is probably the closest we can get to real spirit photography* - peering through thousands of feet of cold, ethereal darkness, tracing the silhouettes of the corpses below.

  1. Wreck of the German liner Steuben, estimated to be the third worst maritime disaster in history (~4,500 killed. But some of them were Nazis, so, you know WHATEVER GUYS).
  2. The freighter Robert E. Lee, sunk by a U-Boat in 1942.  Note lifeboats on the lower-left.  SPOOOOOOOOOKY
  3. The Astorian, sunk in 1923 near Seattle.
  4. F-4 Wildcat, crashed during a training exercise in 1942.
  5. Cessna 414, nose-dived into Long Island Sound under “suspicious circumstances” (ghost was piloting plane — FAA).
  6. WWII-era Bomber, crashed in Lake Washington.
  7. Remains of a WWII-era fighter after a mid-air collision.
  8. Not terribly visually striking but included because it’s the first sonar image of the freaking Titanic, which is a big deal because a lot of white people died on board it :( :( :(
  9. Technically cheating, as this is an “enhanced” image, but cool to look at. 17th-century ship sunk in the Baltic sea.
  10. Finally, a submerged car.

*Ghosts aren’t real.  Fact, not opinion.

List of Recovered Bodies from the Titanic that Remain Unidentified

An absolute treasure trove of morbidity.  Some are terse, some are painstakingly detailed:

#330 Male - Estimated age, 50. Height, 5 ft. 9 in. Weight 160lbs. Bald Head. Hair, Dark. Body badly decomposed.

#203 Male - Estimated age, 45. Hair brown, also brown moustache. Buried at Fairview Cemetery, Halifax, N. S. Wore blue serge suit, union cable belt and striped flannel shirt. Tattooed right arm; snake around coconut palm, hand with bouquet of roses; left arm, woman’s bust over wreath and dagger. Probably a fireman.

Some are… well, kind of weird in what they chose to detail:

#237 Male - Estimated age, 20. Height, 5 ft. 11 in. Weight, 145lbs. Hair, sandy; clean shaven. Marks: shoulders very square.

#223 Male - Estimated age, 20. Height, 5 ft. 5 in. Weight, 145lbs. Hair, Brown. Marks: Eye teeth extra long [Editor’s Note: Passenger later identified as Dracula].

Some possibly reflect the biases of the recoverers:

#29 Male - Height, 5 ft. 7 in.; Weight, 150lbs. Age, about 30. Hair, dark. Buried at Fairview, Cemetery, Halifax, N.S. Nothing to aid in identification. Marks; very faint tattoo mark on left forearm; looks as though attempt was made to have same obliterated.

And some, heartbreaking:

#328 Female - Estimated age, 14. Height, 4 ft. 6 in. Weight, 80 To 85 lbs. Hair, golden brown. Marks, very dark skin, refined features. Buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Halifax, N. S.

I leave you with this bit of intrigue:

Marks, large scroll, girls head with a heart tattooed on right arm. “Bird and plant” with “Jamaica” under, and "Rose" Tattooed on left arm. Buried at Fairview Cemetery, Halifax, N. S.
