Pre Digital/Internet Photojournalism circa 1926

We all take the internet for granted these day’s, but in 1926 to get a photograph cabled and printed in a newspaper on the other side of The Atlantic, then things were a little more complex.
This sketching shows the enormous complexity of the problem during the pre-digital/internet era.

The diagram depicts the sinking of SS Antinoe, mid Atlantic which was photographed by a passenger on SS Roosevelt.

Here’s the actual photograph and how it appeared in the newspaper.

I’ll never curse a slow internet connection ever again.

Mind boggling!
