Ad for a return trip on the Titanic...
Item # 646335
February 19, 1912
NEW-YORK TRIBUNE, Feb. 19, 1912
* Pre Sinking the RMS Titanic
* Return trip home advertisement
Published shortly before the world's largest ship--the "unsinkable" Titanic--would make history by sinking in the North Atlantic, this newspaper contains an advertisement on page 11 for the return trip of the Titanic. Obviously a trip which would never be made.
The ad is headed: "White Star Line", plus: "Plymouth--Cherbourg--Southampton" "The Largest & Finest Steamers in the World" "Olympic & Titanic" "Sail From New York" "April 20" plus a few other details. One wonders how many tickets were purchased for the return trip.
Also of interest is an ad for the "Lusitania" just above the Titanic ad. Curious to have ads for these two disaster-prone ships so close to one another.
Twelve pages, even toning but in nice condition. A bit fragile so it must be handled carefully.
