1912 :: Photo of Iceberg

Edmond Wolf is in receipt of a kodak picture made by his father. A. Wolf, from the deck of the steamship Frankfurt, and showing the iceberg which wrecked the Titanic on the 14th of April. 

Mr. and Mrs. Wolf were passengers on the Frankfurt which was the first ship to catch the Titanic's wireless call for help, but on account of the distance arrived too late to be of any service. The photo is clear and gives a splendid picture of the berg. 

Mr. and Mrs. Wolf have written several letters back home since their arrival in the old country, and report a most enjoyable trip in every respect. Rockdale Reporter and Messenger, May 16, 1912
