Why Was Titanic Steaming Full-Speed Ahead in Iceberg Alley?

Describe the picture, at the top of chapter 16, which shows the general area of Titanic's wreck site.

Under what circumstances do you think a ship, like Titanic, should have been moving at "full speed ahead" in light of the ice conditions in the vicinity of Titanic's accident?

Without access to a picture, like the one which Carpathia’s crew member took in the vicinity of Titanic’s wreck site, how would anyone know the actual condition of the sea at, or about, the time of Titanic's iceberg-strike?

Between eyewitness testimony and a picture, like the one taken by Carpathia’s crew member, which is more reliable? Explain your answer.
