A century ago on April 15, the world had awakened to the news that the great White Star Liner RMS Titanic on its maiden voyage to New York had been in a collision late the night before with an iceberg about 400 miles southeast of New Foundland in frigid Atlantic waters.

 Here's a look at stamps issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, which feature the story of the ill-fated cruise liner from its construction to the tragedy.

Commemorative Titanic stamps from Gambia, part of a collection of enthusiast Kenneth Mascarenhas, are seen on board the Titanic Memorial Cruise in the mid-Atlantic Ocean on April 12. The cruise is retracing the voyage from Southampton of the ill-fated Titanic liner, which hit an iceberg and sank 100 years ago on April 15, 1912.
