Origin Of This Piece: This piece came to us from a lovely woman who's parents, over 100 years ago, planned to emigrate from England to Montreal, Canada. Upon planning their voyage, only one ship was on route to the eastern shores of North America, The Titanic. They purchased their tickets and planned to board a train in New York and head North to complete their journey to Montreal.
A week prior to the Titanic's departure, a friend of theirs informed them of another ship with a direct route to Montreal, set to leave a few weeks later.
\The couple sold their tickets back to White Star Line, and made it to their new home in Montreal safely.
