1912 :: Witness sinking of Titanic



Mr. and Mrs. A. Wolf, of this city, were passengers on the steamship Frankfurt, which was the first ship to speak [to] the Titanic by wireless after the accident. The Frankfurt was too far away, however, to do any good, and arrived on the scene only to find wreckage and dead bodies where the monster ship had gone down. Rockdale Reporter and Messenger, April 25, 1912
