About this Item

An editorial cartoon removed from an unidentified newspaper (probably the Philadelphia Public Ledger) with "Thursday April 18 1912" in pencil across the top. It shows female figures representing the United States and Great Britain with bowed heads, clasping hands above a wreath floating on the water, with an iceberg in the background. The figure on the left, dressed in stars and stripes, is labeled "Columbia," that on the right "Britannia." The wreath is labeled "Titanic." With one verse from "The Loss of the Birkenhead" by Sir F. Doyle. In the lower left corner it says "Sykes." Charles Henry Sykes (1882-1942) was an editorial cartoonist at the Public Ledger in Philadelphia in 1912. During her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City the British passenger liner RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of 15 April 1912. More than 1,500 of the 2,224 passengers and crew aboard died. The reverse of the cartoon contains snippets of Titanic-related articles. In Near Fine Condition: slightly browning; intact; image is crisp. Bookseller Inventory # 004838
