Looking for Titanic Launch Photographs

Found these in a newspaper published shortly after the Titanic sank. Does anyone know where I can find these two photos in better quality? The left photo appears to be the final preparations before her launch as there are crowds on the platform. The photo on the right appears to be taken shortly after her launch.

First off, congratulations on finding two new photographs (I think)! what newspaper did you find it in?

Second, I think the left hand one is just this one below (I hope this picture isn't too big for the webpage's sake).

Third and finally, the photo on the left I never seen before and could be a new discovered photo for all I know. None of the photos I ever seen taken on the Titanic's Port side ever show the actual members of the public watching it.

Hold on a minute... I sorry I posted 3 links in a row, but I just found a clear version on Paul Lee's website.

This is the other one. Nothing new already known. They can also be found in the book "Titanic in Photographs" on page 43 and 47. They had been also in different newspapers from 1911 & 1912.
