Titanic Newspaper. 1912 Misreporting Saying EVERYONE SAFE #titanic

⭕ Be part of Maritime HISTORY, with this rare Titanic Newspaper.

April 16 1912 when Original printed the Newspaper was hasty in reporting that Everyone was safe and that all aboard TITANIC had been transshipped to another vessel safe and well.

This is the last Titanic item I am selling, due to raise some funds to help keep a promise I made to my daughter.

Everyone safe -- morning of suspense ends in message of relief.

Those words, printed in the Daily Mirror on April 16, 1912, would have lifted a huge weight from the shoulders of families desperate for news of the Titanics fate.

But the newspaper was left red-faced when it was revealed the ocean liner had sunk, killing more than 1,500 people, the previous day.

The article wrongly claimed every man, woman and child on the great liner is safe and that the greatest ship the world has ever known was being towed to a nearby port.

If the first reports said everybody was safe they would have breathed a sigh of relief and then the cold truth would have come out.

Its very interesting to read, it was 100 years ago and there were not mobile telephones or the internet like there is today, so it wasnt clear what had happened.

The article says that the Titanic is carrying on with its journey and that all the passengers are safe.

Its just as full of untruths as some newspapers are today.
