Original Type I photograph picturing a huge crowd outside the New York office of the "New York American" as they view the latest update on the Titanic disaster. The crystal-clear image pictures an employee handwriting the latest news on a large chalkboard set up outside the office's second-story windows. The large header on the board reads "Latest News - White Star Titanic." Three Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse along with a vintage notation that reads "News Bulletin of Titanic Disaster." Also on the reverse is a more recent handwritten information sheet that has been affixed with clear tape. The photo (7x5") displays light creasing and a wavy bottom border. In Very Good condition overall. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type I Authentic.
