Three early Titanic Marconigrams, or radio telegrams. All three were sent on April 15, 1912, the date of the Titanic's sinking. Of these, the earliest was sent at 7:45 am from the rescue ship Olympic. It states: "Since midnight, when her position was 41.46 N 50.14W have been unable to communicate. We are now 310 miles from her. Will inform at once if hear anything".

Titanic Mourning Postcard from 1912. Many survivors remembered that the Titanic’s eight musicians played the hymn “Nearer My God to Thee” immediately before the ship sank.
