Life on TitanicEdit
Thomas Andrews was one of the nine-man guarantee group to be on board to oversee the maiden voyage of the Titanic.
Andrews was last seen standing in the first–class smoking room staring at a painting, "Plymouth Harbour", above the fireplace, his life jacket lying on a nearby table (in the movie he gave the life jacket to Rose in hopes that she would survive, as well as he express to her his regrets and seeks her apology, and they embrace, as a final farewell). The painting depicted the entrance to where the Titanic expected to visit on her return voyage.
The painting is often incorrectly shown on television and in movies as depicting the entrance to New York.
While the musicians performed Nearer God To Thee, Andrews was carefully correcting the clock on the mantle. Andrews died when the ship split and destroyed the smoking room.
