W.T. Stead.

Postby VW1956 » Mon Dec 05, 2011 6:20 pm

Hello. Just read of another coincidence. Well it's new to me. In 1886 a W. T. Stead wrote a story called "How the Mail Steamer went Down in the Atlantic" where most of the people died because of a shortage of boats. Then in 1892 W. T. Stead wrote "From the Old World to the New" in which the Majestic attemps a rescue of a ship that had struck an iceberg and the Captains name was E. J. Smith. Ken.

Hello. Just read another fact that I did not know about Mr W T Stead. He has been in prison. To make it headline news about the trade in young girls being sold in England. He bought a 13 year old girl from the girls mother for £5 just to prove how easy it was. Ken.
