This photo is not from "1912". It's not aboard Titanic, as often stated. Smith is only wearing the 1903 decoration and not also the 1908 decoration. Thus this image dates from between 1903 and 1908. It is very most likely aboard Baltic, or otherwise Majestic or Adriatic. Also, the window design would not be seen aboard Titanic. Furthermore, the dark +/- 4 feet high 'paneling' is very much unlike Titanic. Both design characteristics however are consistent with Baltic. Lastly, on Titanic the Smith uniform would show different characteristics. The 'Arts & Heritage' department of Southampton City Council, which owns the antique photo print, has confirmed it's not aboard Titanic. By the way, images of Smith in white summer uniform are not aboard Titanic.
