Photo Caption:

The sinking of the Relief Lightship LV 58 and the rescue by the crew of the Azalea was headline news as shown from this December 12, 1905 edition of The Evening Standard, a newspaper in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The event was such big news in its time that the front page of the newspaper was made into a post card for the Standard Carrier’s New Year’s Greeting Series. (Lighthouse Digest archives.)
