Titanic and Carpathia Ad

An amazing advertisement from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper. The date of this ad is March 15, 1912, a little less than a month before Titanic's maiden voyage. It is advertising upcoming trips on Titanic (and Olympic) from New York, starting on April 20th. As many know, Titanic never reached New York, so these sailing dates were unfortunately never meant to be.

This ad in itself is a great and scarce collectible but what makes this exceptional is the adjoining ad to the right. It features the sailing dates for the Carpathia (see enlarged picture), which left port on April 11, 1912. Within a few days, the Carpathia would heroically steam to the rescue and pick up the survivors of the ill fated Titanic and return to New York.
