Titanic Sinks!
Original Antique (107 Years Old) Bangor Newspaper
April 14, 1912  Day of Sinking

 


Here is a fantastic ORIGINAL Bangor Daily Commercial Newspaper reporting on the historic Titanic Sinking published  April 14, 1912, exact day of sinking.    Complete newspaper with several stories about the sinking.   Also has nice Front Page graphic map of where they suspect Titanic disaster took place.  

NOTE: ORIGINAL Titanic Papers are very rare, as MOST you will see for sale are Reproductions.     Papers known to have reproductions include The Boston Globe, NY Times, Chicago Tribune and other major city papers.  There are NO Known Reproductions of the "Bangor Daily Commercial" as this was a relatively unknown newspaper from Maine and highly unlikely anyone would want to reproduce it.   Paper is 107 years old and very brittle, age toning and some minor staining.  That said, it is in tact and a beautiful historical specimen for a most unforgettable event in American and World History..  

NOTE: This April 14th edition was published the VERY Day of the sinking and of course in 1912 they didn't have the communication technology they have today so they had to speculate since real time data had not come in yet.   They would later discover the Titanic struck an iceberg on April 14, 1912, but did not sink until the early morning hours of April 15th.  Hence,  note on the April 14th edition, the headline reads "went down with 1200 of the crew and passengers", which unfortunately was low by nearly 400 hundred.   

Note:  Below you will see the "Survivor List" from the rescue ship Carpathia from inside the paper.  We are not sure HOW the Bangor Daily could have published this in their April 14th edition..  but can only speculate that they printed the paper on the 14th and continued editing and then distributed all over Maine on the 15th.   

 * See enlargeable images above and below.

Large original size about 20x24".  Would look Amazing Framed !!
