Mrs Gold, A Titanic Survivor

Mrs. Gold, who was chief stewardess on board the ill-fated Titanic, has taken up her residence in Ballarat as housekeeper to her uncle, Mr Harry Wright, for many years guard on the railway lines between Ballarat and Melbourne.  She is a first cousin of Mr. T. J. Wright, post master in Ballarat city.

Mrs. Gold, who arrived in Australia a few weeks ago by the Belgic, said she did not like recalling the terrible scenes connected with the foundering of the mammoth liner. She had quitted the sea for ever, and would probably remain in Ballarat.

Mrs Gold was one of the last to leave the sinking steamer and was picked up by a boat from the liner Carpathia.
