    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.

    Well, I now understand that Mr. Andrews is the nephew of Lord Pirrie, but, why was it that this has never been mentioned? Besides, Andrews died at 39, so how old was Lord Pirrie? - Smith [email protected]
