You have to copy and paste the link as for some reason its not doing it like before - if that makes any sense. They are well worth a look. There is an interesting photograph of Canadian troops on her poop deck!
How wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing these, Jon. High quality photographs showing passengers aboard the Olympic BEFORE the Great War seem to be exceptionally rare - these are, in fact, the very first I've seen.
Judging from the array of fashionable clothing, I'd date these snaps to the summer of 1913 - perhaps 1914, at the very latest. No matter when they were taken, they are fantastically helpful in allowing us to imagine how the decks of the Titanic looked during her maiden voyage.
What you say is perfectly true. But, as the Olympic and Titanic were, to all intents and purposes, identical twin sisters, these photographs are more helpful in allowing us to imagine what life was like aboard in April, 1912, than - say - similar photographs taken aboard the Mauretania in 1923. That was the point I was trying to make...
I made it clear in an earlier post these photographs were from ebay in this topic but you did not say anything then or remove them and nor did the other moderator who was posting here. But I will be happy to take them off if you want
I take that that's a reference to an email I saw in my Inbox (but didn't have a chance to read) before I left for work this morning. I'll respond to it tonight unless this message covers it.

Links to websites with photos are not an issue, though we do expect you to give due credit to the website and whoever owns the material.
