Montreal, Monday (6.00 a.m.) April 15, 1912

TITANIC STRUCK AN ICEBERG. SENDS MARCONIGRAM ASKING FOR ASSISTANCE. VIRGINIAN GOING TO HER RESCUE.

From New York, Monday. April 15, 1912

"VESSEL SINKING"

STEAMERS ARE TOWING THE TITANIC. AND ENDEAVOURING TO GET HER INTO THE SHOAL WATER NEAR CAPE RACE. FOR THE PURPOSE OF BEACHING HER.

From New York, Monday night. April 15, 1912

THE WHITE STAR OFFICIALS NOW ADMIT THAT MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST.

News of the Titanic’s catastrophic sinking, days after her maiden voyage, shocked the world. The public was frantic for information and answers, and the London Daily Telegraph, the largest circulating newspaper in the world at the time, was charged with the task of relaying what exactly had happened to the luxury liner. But with false reports abounding and no access to survivors, that task was easier said than done.

Read how a paper, and the world, struggled to find and report the truth of the most disastrous maritime accident in history.
