The moderators should be taking down the original photographs, but I can only have it taken down if I put up another one with a watermark of some sort on it. Here is the picture we are talking about.

Hi Craig,

hopefully they will be taken down soon - they are still up as you know. Sometimes it is better to have a link to a spot where you host the photographs and then you can pull them at will. Read the terms of use when you get a chance.

Best,
Eric

Dieter,

Thank you for posting that. I've never seen that postcard before and plan on purchasing the book soon.

Eric,

Thanks for the advice. It says that you work in image restoration, that's very interesting What would you recommend for my photo to preserve it?

All the best,
Craig

Hi Craig,

I just found you post - I would keep such a photo in acid free/archival storage materials. There are a few option - will get back to you.

Best,
Eric

Would you be so kind as to upload a larger resolution image? I'm not so fussed about the watermark, I can understand why you would be doing that, however it would be nice in a higher resolution so as I could see the half raised anchor that is mentioned. Thanks in advance

A photo postcard made from the same negative but showing only some part of the ship is mentioned in the book

R.M.S. 'Titanic' - A portrait in old picture postcards
by Mark Bown and Roger Simmons
ISBN 1-85770-075-9

View attachment 5250

The text next to the image reads:

> AT SOUTHAMPTON

> An unusual photograph reproduced on a
> postcard, showing the third and fourth
> funnels and the centre section of the
> 'Titanic'. The fourth or 'dummy' funnel
> was used for ventilation purposes only and
> it is interesting to note how many pictures
> of the 'Titanic' show the liner with smoke
> issuing from all four funnels.
> On the reverse of the postcard, the message
> reads: " 'Titanic' with Fred's yacht alongside
> just prior to departure from Southampton".
>
> (Publisher unknown - M. Bown collection)

Does anyone have an idea who this Fred might be?

At the bottom of the large picture one can read a number and the name Stuart, maybe this means it comes from THE Francis Godolphin Osbourne Stuart.
This photo, for anyone in the future here
