ORIGINAL PHOTO 1915 - R. Photographic image of Lusitania Survivors at Sea. On 7 May 1915 Lusitania was nearing the end of her crossing, bound for Liverpool from New York, and was scheduled to dock at the Prince's Landing Stage later that afternoon. Aboard her were 1,266 passengers and a crew of 696, which combined totaled to 1,962 people. She was running parallel to the south coast of Ireland, and was roughly 11 miles off the Old Head of Kinsale when the liner crossed in front of U-20 at 14:10. Due to the liner's great speed, some believe the intersection of the German U-boat and the liner to be coincidence, as U-20 could hardly have caught the fast vessel otherwise. There are discrepancies concerning the speed of Lusitania , as it had been reported travelling not near its full speed. Walther Schwieger, the commanding officer of the U-boat, gave the order to fire one torpedo, which struck Lusitania on the starboard bow, just beneath the wheelhouse. Moments later, a second explosion erupted from within Lusitania. In all, only six out of 48 lifeboats were launched successfully, with several more overturning and breaking apart. Of the 1,962 passengers and crew aboard Lusitania at the time of the sinking, 1,198 lost their lives.

As in the sinking of Titanic , most of the casualties were from drowning or hypothermia. In the hours after the sinking, acts of heroism amongst both the survivors of the sinking and the Irish rescuers who had heard word of Lusitania. S distress signals brought the survivor count to 764, three of whom later died from injuries sustained during the sinking. The reverse of the image contains the Culver Pictures stamp, along with written notations identifying the picture.
