The violin from the band that played as the Titanic sank was recovered in an attic in England, and is currently on display on the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the ship on April 15, 2013 in Devizes, England. The
rosewood violin was believed to have disappeared beneath the waves when
its owner, band leader Wallace Hartley, drowned with some 1,500 others
on board the supposedly "unsinkable" ocean liner in April 1912. Long thought to have been either lost at sea or stolen, it is being
described, as far as Titanic memorabilia goes, as one the most important
pieces that has ever come up for sale.
