Carpathia Old Postcard


Yet another great example of how advertisers and printers tried to quickly capitalize on the wreck of Titanic. This is a very early post-sinking postcard of the Carpathia, probably no more than a few days after the accident. Taken from a drawing that already existed, lifeboats, rope lines and even a person in the water was added. In the haste several errors were printed, such as Capt. Rostron's name is spelled with an "M", the death toll is listed as 1,600 and it states the Carpathia had 200 passengers (there were about 750).
