A photo of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic and a description of red paint scraped along one side of it has come to light after spending years hanging in the boardroom of the doomed liner's lawyers.<br />
<br />
The picture and hand-written statement were by the chief steward of a vessel that passed by the scene of the disaster hours later.<br />
<br />
He described seeing red paint that appeared to be from the scraping of a vessel along one side of the floe before taking the photo.<br />

Both documents are being sold at auction by Henry Aldridge and Son of Devizes, Wilts, for an estimated £15,000.
