The first one is a mystery to me. Its a postcard in my collection - it looks pretty old yet I get the feeling it may be a repoduction.

Anyone else have this postcard in their collection?

By the look of the typeface I'd say it was a reproduction.
Forgot to say, if this postcard is a copyright then I will remove it.

This image comes from the 1919 return to service Brochure that White Star put out for Olympic.

I think its really interesting as you can see the full length of Marconi between the two masts.
The number of tugs is also stunning - but were 9 tugs necessary?

Greg, 12 tugs were used to berth Olympic upon her arrival in New York on June 21, 1911. As Olympic was not yet back to service by 1919, and she's depicted above in her normal colors, my guess is that this photo is pre-WWI.

Well, judging by the amount of lifeboats on her, I'd have to opine this was after the Titanic disaster.

Just a thought there,

Best regards,
