This is an example of an early Titanic disaster postcard. This postcard was produced in two editions with the first and rarest edition beginning with the wording “The Titanic S.S.” unlike the more common second edition which was corrected to read “The S.S. Titanic”.  Photographs of Titanic were rare due to her short life, so pictures of her nearly identical sister Olympic were often substituted. These postcards feature the Olympic posing as her lost sister.
