Titanic - First Telegram Reporting Disaster

First telegram from RMS Titanic reporting the disaster

This image is of the original telegram reporting the Titanic disaster.  The White Star Line sent it to London's General Post Office at 4:57 a.m., on the 15th of April, 1912.  Bearing Bruce Ismay's name, it states (erroneously) "that there is no danger of loss of life."
