✍🏼 *The EXTRA-BIT of useful/useless info* 👇🏼

Did you know that the Titanic almost experienced a collision days before it sank.

Just days before the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in April 1912, it almost hit another boat, according to a letter from steward, Richard Gedde, that was written on the doomed ship’s stationery.

Writing to his wife, one day after setting sail from the United Kingdom, Gedde—who died in the tragedy—mentioned that as the ship was leaving the dock, it narrowly missed colliding with the SS City of New York.

“We got away yesterday after a lot of trouble,” reads the letter, which was auctioned in 2019. “As we were passing the New York and Oceanic, the New York broke her ropes and very nearly ran into us, but we just happened to avoid a collision … It must have been a trying time for the captain.”
