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.

Hiya Martin & Bill

They are photographs currently up for sale on ebay and were taken in 1913! Also in the album are some pictures taken on the Baltic. It will be interesting to see how much they sell for.

I personally am more interested that they show Olympic in her early years. Not that they help out with Titanic. Olympic was a ship in her own right.

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...

Hi Jon,

Are these your photographs or are you taking the scanned images off eBay and posting them?

Best wishes,
Eric

Hi

Some are from ebay - yes! It's the best place to find unseen photographs.

It's also a good way to get burned for copyright infringement unless you have the permission of the owner to post them. Tread carefully here.

I have contacted a moderator about it! If you think there is a problem with posting these images I can always remove them from MSN photos.
Thanks
Jon

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 :)
