R.M.S. Lusitania

1993 Expedition


(Top)  This photo shows the original location of the telegraph on the docking bridge (blue arrow).  By 1915, it had been moved farther to port (red arrow).

(Bottom)  Two of Lusitaniaís telegraphs lying on the bottom near the remains of the docking bridge.   The one on the left was a wall-mounted unit originally fitted in the aft wheelhouse under the docking bridge.  The one on the right was the free-standing unit located on the docking bridge above.  (Photo courtesy of Leigh Bishop, www.deepimages.co.uk)
