'Nearer My God To Thee', Titanic memorial postcard 1912.

There was a widespread sense of loss following the Titanic disaster. Commemorative postcards were a popular way of expressing this grief.

The English firm Bamforth & Co. published a 6-card set illustrating verses from 'Nearer My God To Thee'.  The cards pay tribute to the dead and provide reassurance of a heavenly home for one and all.
