Thank you for your awesome drawing of the Carpathia! You did a great job on it. We don't see many pictures of this ship - iit's usually the Titanic since that was the new ship and so famous. The Carpathia was a name that I learned as a little girl. My mother used to tell me how important this ship was to our family because it rescued our Cousin who was on her way to join her father in Northern Michigan! They were coming from St. Ives and the family was large so the father was sending money to have the younger kids come over as quickly as he could afford to. He was working in a Copper Mine in Hancock, MI! They all arrived safe eventually, but poor Maude Sincock was afraid after going through that ordeal and saw the Titanic go down from lifeboat #11. Luckily she and the lady who she was traveling with were in Second Class. So she showed up on the deck just in time to get into the lifeboat and a gentleman was nice enough to give her his coat to wear. She only had a slip on! I wanted to share this story as my mother told me over and over again! Maude loved to tell her story over and over again and lived to be in her 90's! Thank you again Milos! My name is Kathleen Lundman.
I originally wanted to do another thread of me trying to draw Mount Temple doing a really sharp turn in this way, but that did not gonna happen as I was moving away from drawing tramp steamers. Also this is a perfect opportunity to say something. For anyone who's seen my post on the site. I'm terrible at explaining things like saying "captain Moore turned the ship at the really sharp turn than 90° rather than be more specific with his testimony". So, I apologise for that when posting in the "Who's the most negligent captain" as I'm not that familiar with the subject. I'm gonna be completely honest here, I don't blame the crew of the Mount Temple for their attempt to answer the distress call. It's just me trying to put the pieces together.
