About this scrapbook page:
The Carpathia was steaming east from New York City bound for Gibraltar on the night of Sunday, 14 April 1912. Her wireless operator, Harold Cottam had missed previous messages from the RMS Titanic, being on the bridge at the time. He received messages from Cape Race stating that they had private traffic for the Titanic. He thought he would be helpful and sent a message to the Titanic stating that Cape Race had traffic for them.
Design credits:
In reply he received a distress signal. Cottam awakened Captain Arthur Henry Rostron who immediately set a course at maximum speed to Titanic's last known position, approximately 58 miles away. Rostron ordered the ship's heating and hot water to be cut off, so the engines could feed on every ounce of steam. At 4 o'clock in the morning, Carpathia arrived at the scene after working her way through dangerous ice fields. Carpathia was able to save 705 people
