Randy:
Thanks for all those great sites and pictures. Maybe we should talk to Phil about having a new section where we can just post interesting sites like that. Or better yet, maybe a section on the regular board similar to links where you could search for a name, like Widener for example, and come up with your http. Or, perhaps they could be attached to the individual biographies. Just some thoughts. It sounds like a hell of a lot of work now that I think about it.

Mike,

Thanks. These are images I ran across during my own picture research over the last year and since some of them haven't been seen by most people I thought I'd share them.

There are a lot of authors and potential authors among us and, though most might wish to leave the picture-hunting to publishers, I don't believe in relying on a publisher's staff of picture researchers who will invariably pick an image that's been used time & again. Or, as we've all seen in recent books, the pictures are often misidentified or misdated.

For those like me who are working on a book or article or any kind of project, I urge you to take advantage of searching Corbis-Bettmann or the Illustrated London News Picture Library ON YOUR OWN - you'll be surprised what you find.

By the way, the images I've posted here are only a very small percentage of what is to be found.

Hi Randy,

Thanks very much for all the sites and pictures. They are very interesting to see.

I must say Lady Duff Gordon was a good looking lady in her day.

I hope you are well.

Best regards,

Jason

Dear Randy,
have just looked at the picture of the 'makeshift dorm on Carpathia for male Titanic survivors' It is a great picture, of excellent clarity, but it shows male crew members from the victualling department, while they were being held in Plymouth, following their return to England on the Lapland.
I thought I should say something.
Regards
Craig

Craig,

Thanks for clarifying. Corbis needs all the help they can get when it comes to ID-ing some of their images. Many only have partial captions and it takes their researchers a while to dig for more info. I will let them know the ship is not the Carpathia if they haven't already been contacted. I told them the dates of some of their Lady Duff Gordon pics were off & they still haven't corrected the errors. But they have a good crew working; it's just with so many pictures in so many collections, it's tough going.

I'd love to know who the passengers disembarking on the photo are. I'm guessing the elderly lady is a first class passenger ... who might she be.

Thanx for sharing those photos with us Randy, you're a champ!

I hope all is well.

Warm Regards,

Daniel.

Also, the Harders and Mrs. Hays have been identified as the people on the Carpathia, but does anyone have any idea who the two gentlemen on the left of the photo are. They often appear on this photo but their identity is neglected.

Daniel.

Daniel,

I've wondered too about the gentlemen in the corner. They seem elderly. Were there any men in first class on Titanic who might fit their age? I have a suspicion they are Carpathia passengers.

Actually it has been made apparent it was not Mrs Hays with the Harders. Even Blackmarr wrote Mrs. W
So who could it be- White? Wick?
