Francis Browne was an avid photographer. However, his great collection of negatives lay forgotten for 25 years after his death. By chance in 1986 they were discovered in a large metal trunk. The negatives to the attention of the features editor of the London Sunday Times who dubbed them “the photographic equivalent to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls”. This photographic collection contains the only visual record of photographs of the Titanic as she left Ireland to set across the Atlantic. Father Browne had travelled as a passenger on the Titanic from Southampton to Ireland, where he fortunately disembarked.
