Nova Scotia cable station building that relayed news of Titanic to be demolished

Today 01:32 GMT

A Nova Scotia cable station that relayed breaking news about the sinking of the Titanic and the end of the First World War will soon be demolished.

The former Commercial Cable building in Hazel Hill – built in 1888 and shuttered in 1962 – carried a daily average of 3,000 messages from all over the world. A local group, the Commercial Cable Rehabilitation Society, had been working to preserve the brick building that overlooks Hazel Hill Lake, but announced three years ago it had exhausted attempts to find a sustainable use for the structure.
