such a tragedy
Lisl: After such great optimism
I cannot imagine sending a postcard like that to someone.
Lisl: I must admit, it IS blank on the back!
Une réapparition du vaisseau devenu fantôme.
Chouette cette vieille carte postale.
Lisl: I doubt if many postcards feature this
That might be worth something, Elisabeth.
Lisl: Do you think so, Frank?

A appropriate postcard to send to an overly enthusiastic acquaintance who is about to embark on the cruise you could not afford, Lisl.
Lisl: A real sour grapes sort of thing, Ray

10 days and 106 years..... and quite a tragic history, Lisl. It is just incredible that one 'ice-cube' could destroy this 'maser of the sea'....
Lisl: I remember finding the gravestone of one of the survivors once, but am annoyed I cannot remember where
Lest we forget!
Lisl: Certainly a name which will never be forgotten

They seem almost proud of the deaths..
Lisl: Yes - isn't it odd?
C'était un très beau paquebot.
Lisl: She certainly was most elegant

A tragedy that still haunts many people. Such hopes dashed by a the drive for speed.

LOL at Ray. I'm always on the look out for ice floes on the crossing to the Isle of Wight smile
Lisl: I am relieved to learn that you are so watchful, Alan

Oh, I love these old postcards!
Lisl: I have quite a collection, and will show more another day

Quite an iconic vessel since it sank Lisl. The exhibition in Belfast is very good.
Lisl: I didn't know about the exhibition, Chad
It was a salutary lesson to the Victorians who thought they were the masters of everything
Lisl: They needed a Brunel, Bill

It is the fate of the 'steerage' passengers that is so tragic. en-route to a new life !. So many hopes, so many dreams !!
Lisl: Sad for all, Hugh
Il était magnifique et il a fait tant de vies perdues. Quelle tragédie. Très belle carte postale Lisl, aujourd'hui j'écris en français car j'ai pris du retard et pas le temps de réfléchir.
Lisl: I am quite happy to read and understand your comments in French, Marie. It is when I write French that I am a bit rusty!
A well known story here in Atlantic Canada of course. I have shown here, the lighthouse that received the first signal from the ship.
Lisl: Really, Mary - how interesting
She was a fine looking vessel and this is a very good card.
Lisl: I was pleased to inherit this with some other old postcards from my Aunt Lily

Makes a good picture, this postcard that is not supposed to get sent.
Lisl: It never was either, Louis
Bella, I guess it also has a certain value for a collector.
Lisl: I imagine it probably has - I must Google it!
