I believe it is "Olympic". The "Titanic" name is poorly painted into the negative, and "Titanic" was constructed in the cradle closer to the photographer.

Sorry guys, wrong slip. That is in fact the Titanic a day or two away from being launched. The Olympic was painted white for her launch and was built in the other slip.

The name Titanic was actually etched into the proof. Using the original glass negative, the name is still there but you see it dark and recessed into the hull plating as it was in real life.

Michael's correct, this is the Titanic.
Don't forget, the B-deck windows changed a few months after the launch during the fitting-out process. At launch, they were the same as the Olympic's.
(It was the Olympic that was constructed in the cradle closer to the photographer).
