Hello

I am wondering what kind of forms they would have used on The Titanic.

was it like this?: http://www.abratis.de/sources/pictures/pic/scans/telegram.gif

or like this?:

or maybe, the first is for sending and the second for receiving?


Thanks

Bryan

Hi Bryan

I think you are right about the order you say they go in, with the first being for sending and the second for receiving. You can see the box for the price on the first one, and since they paid before the message was sent, it would be a very sensible and good guess to say that that one was used before the sending.

Also if you look at the messages received by other ships from the Titanic like this one from the Carpathia, it looks quite similar to the second telegram picture, but a bit less complex as this one was used on a ship, and the image you posted was used in a land post-office (I think).

I hope that helps!
