RMS Titanic - Dresden Enterprise dated April 26, 1912

On April 26, 1912, the big news story on the front page of the Dresden Enterprise was the death of John W. Moran who had passed away on April 12 and The Dresden Banks New President, James H. Moran III.  Buried on page six was an article about the sinking of the Titanic.
It's interesting to note that the reporter, in the midst of such a tragedy, felt it necessary to give a 
fashion report on Mrs. John Jacob Aster. "She was dressed in a black Astrakan coat
and walked with difficulty."
