    Question Pirrie's role and motivations in the IMMC deal?

    Hello, I recently came across some articles claiming Pirrie was the one who headed the deal between the White Star Line and the IMMC. It also suggested it was because Pirrie was skeptical of J. Bruce Ismay's capabilities as Chairman. This would align with a claim (I admittedly can't recall...

    Olympic Launch Photo of Morgan and Pirrie

    Hi! This photo was identified as 'J. P. Morgan' and Lord Pirrie attending Olympic's launch in 1910. Has anyone seen it before, and if so do the two men appear to be identified correctly? After all the misidentifications on Titanic photos, you never know! Best wishes, Mark.
