Daily Onboard Newspapers and Stock Reports - 1910
Quite a number of ships have daily newspapers, thanks to the wireless. The news columns are meagre, but serve at least to take away the "cutoff" feeling.
The reproduction on next page shows that it is hardly a substitute for the New York "Sun" or "Times." The Cunard Company inaugurated this service. A small price (Id.) on the Cunard line is charged for the papers and a set for the voyage is also sold.
Many of the latest ships receive stock reports almost all the way over. Some lines do not care to give information of this character, thinking that the voyage should be devoted to recuperation. The reports are, of course. sent by wireless and relayed from ship to ship, when necessary.
