Titanic - Second Telegram Reporting Disaster

Second telegram from RMS Titanic reporting the disaster

This image depicts a second telegram which the White Star Line sent to London's Post Office at 5:26 a.m., on the 15th of April, 1912.  It states (again, erroneously) that Titanic is proceeding to Cape Race (about 400 miles from the place where she rammed the iceberg) and that all passengers were transferred, most likely to the Virginian.
