Marjorie Newell photographs

Have any photographs of Marjorie Newell in her youth--more specifically around 1912--been published in some of the numerous Titanic-related books available? I am interested to see what she looked like around the time of the disaster, and for some reason the photos available on her biography page are not loading for me. I understand Michael Findlay is the man to ask, but help from any source would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nathan

I have only seen the picture of Marjorie in youth on ET, and sorry it is not loading for you. Since we both have AOL, I will try sending it to you, but remember that copyright belongs to ET/Michael Findlay. I am interested in the total opposite as you, I am interested in Marjorie in older-age pictures. I have a few of those. Well, hope I can help.

Mark,

That would be great if you could e-mail that picture of 'young Marjorie' to me--I don't know why it won't show up on my screen. And as for photographs of Marjorie in her later years: those are of interest to me as well. I have seen what she looked like in old age (in interviews and such), but never what she looked like around 1912.

Thanks again,

Nathan

Nathan- I have a lot of photos from age 97- 102 but am not sure how to post them to this board. Just got a scanner for Christmas. If you could write to me at Revdma@aol.com we can figure it out.

Shelley:
My equally challenged friend. After Nathan teaches you, please explain to this old dinosaur how it works. My wife got me one for Christmas also, and all I've used it for so far is to make photocopies. A very expensive Xerox machine, but beats pressing down hard on carbon paper, ehhh.

If you click on the spots to magnify the image, the pictures come up. I don't know why that funny square with the X is there. More server problems maybe?

BTW, I don't have AOL, so I doubt that's the problem.

Cordially,

Note for Philip Hind,

The photograph of Arthur Webster Newell appears to be a dead picture link as well.

Wow- have gotten a lot of mail about the Newell photos. My brilliant daughter is coming home from school to teach her antiquated Ma how to use the scanner and post pix- so I will be digging them out soon to post for everybody. Also have some very nice Marshall Drew, Frank Aks , Ake Dubois, and Louise Pope photos if there is any interest.

Thanks for patience- I have set up a geocities webpage since I can't figure out how to post pix here. Will have the clever daughter home NEXT weekend to scan stuff- it was nice to get so many requests. I have a lot of photos of her- mostly from age 96-101, including her 100 birthday party.

Hey Shell,

If you need any pix, just let me know. We're all just flopping around the house today preparing for the blizzard. Since we expect to be snowbound for awhile, I'll gather a bunch of photos to send. I just found a great pic of Marshall at your house in the summer of 1985 having a cold beer, and Michel Navratil with one of the cruise directors doing 'the twist' on the Island Breeze in 1996. I love the one of Lou Pope feeding the horse in Philadelphia prior to her carriage ride around the city in 1989. When one of the carriage drivers cautioned her about the animal sampling human fingers, she brushed aside his warnings - "I raised horses for years on the farm - I know how to handle to them!" and she sure did. How she loved animals, in addition, to her gardening.....

Let me know when the website is up, Shell. Hope Mother Nature doesn't inflict too much wrath around Dovecoat

The wind is roaring, beach flooding and 18 inches of snow by morning predicted- so time to hunt up all the photos Mike. I have the one of Marjorie as a girl, the one of her playing the violin also-is that Madeline playing the piano? And the one of her family- these are copies of the prints from the family collection. The site is built and up but am waiting for my child expert to scan the photos- should be done by Sunday night- there are quite a few of Beatrice Sandstrom, Marshall, Marjorie, mr. Navratil, Bertram and Milvina Dean, Frank and Marie Aks, Ake Dubois, Lou Pope and Mrs. Shuman, Mrs. Haisman- and you must have lots too. Send what you have- it will be fun to post them for everybody. Watching my mailbox../shell

Andrew- I will be glad to send you the photos as soon as my kiddo gets home Friday- I have no earthly idea how to use this blasted Microtek scanner- I use it for a popcorn bowl holder! Will be happy to share all the photos with y'all-a great many I have sent to TIS archives but there's some in the house still.
