Ill-fated ships

Out of curiosity, I wanted to see if there were any newspapers that carried an ad for the Titanic before it sank on its maiden voyage. Sure enough, the April 8 1912 edition of the Toronto Globe contained this:

The body of the ad text misspelled the liner’s name as “Titantic”.

This is actually a two-for-one special: there is also an ad for the Lusitania, which was eventually torpedoed by a German U-boat in 1915.
