Hi Darren,

The Library of Congress' Prints and Photographs Division have many photos of interest to the researcher. As to Titanic passengers, they have photos of Lucy Duff Gordon, Archie Butt, Molly Brown, Dorothy Gibson and Edith Russell.

The Maj. Butt pics I posted under his current thread are from LOC. Regular 8x10 prints cost only $65, more for special sizes and finishes. And they are non-copyright restricted. When reproducing an image, the LOC requests a credit line but no fee is charged.

To search the LOC Prints and Photos Online, go to:

Just type in the subject's name in the top box to retrieve sample images and details.

Randy, I'm sorry to bring this up but don't you think Dorothy Gibson has a passing resemblance to Jack Lemon in "Some Like it Hot"
Geez - but these three look like the kind of girls only Behe and Cook can pull!

Yeah, those are the boys, and all wearing 'Lucille' creations hastily bought for a special occasion. These pics were snapped on the Carpathia before they had time to change.

Randy,

I just don't see Dorothy in that last pic ... maybe just me though. As for "only $65" are you kidding! If that's US, that's more than an arm and a leg for 1 photo! I'd have to give up my whole body! When I was ordering interior photos from the Museum of the City of New York, I thought $40 a print would be the end of me! I barely made it through and recently placed another order for photos, just over a year since my MCoNY order.

Daniel.

Oh, that I could win the Lotto so I could buy the photos and Franklin Mint dolls to my heart's content! Thanks for sharing, Randy. I appreciate the images.

You're right! I think she WAS probably trying to be "hot" - maybe to lure her ex-hubby back into the fold!

Shocking that such a nice guy can be so mean!

Cook wrote: "I thought those WERE pictures of Behe, Cook and Whitfield!"

Right except about Geoff. He was standing in as Molly in the lacy dress. That's actually Phil G as Dot. Which is why Daniel didn't recognize her/him.

Bob, you have a very good eye for chic clothes. Those are indeed Lucile gowns.

Well, at least we can be pretty sure Lucy's is. And Kyrila, I thought you already owned EVERY Franklin Mint doll there was!

No, I just have the pictures from the catalog, Randy! Actually, I only have the Rose doll and the Josephine doll. Someday maybe I'll get the Amelia doll, too! That would be sweet.

Here is a newly-found photo from the Library of Congress' Prints and Photographs Division.

MADELEINE ASTOR

This portrait is tentatively dated 1913 but I suspect it was taken earlier, perhaps just after the birth of her son. In fact, though the image is obviously cropped, it looks like she's holding her baby. It was most likely taken in late 1912 while she was still wearing mourning.
