AUCTION OF OLYMPIC FITTINGS

The Times

SALE CONCLUDED

The sale at Jarrow of the fittings of the Olympic concluded today, which was the tenth day, and the last lot offered was No.4,456.. The total realized was not announced, and several lots were not sold. On some days during the auction the attendance was small, and a representative of the auctioneers stated that, while prices were regarded as fair, there had been little sentiment shown in acquiring mementoes, and that probably more interest would have been taken and better results secured had the sale taken place at Southampton.

The biggest buyer was Mr C.T.Hawtree of the Majestic Lido Hotel, Douglas, and of Port Soderick, Isle of Man, who purchased 394 lots. The ship’s bell was sold today for 26 guineas, the purchasers being Messrs. J.Hogg and Son, brass founders and ship fitters, North Shields. One of the lifeboats, cranes, winches, and electrical equipment were also sold. The auctioneers were Messrs. Knight, Frank and Rutley (Hanover Square), acting by order of Thomas W.Ward, Limited.
