Phil, I have not the faintest idea where this link should go, but being the Good Samaritan that you are, I am sure you will direct it to the correct location.

While looking for other materials at the U.S. Governments National Archives site (www.nara.gov), I chanced upon these Titantic related photos held by the government. I am only copying and pasting the page of descriptions, hopefully it comes out as only text. While I am not sure how well known these are, I do believe that these may be freely used with attribution to the U.S. National Archives & Records Administration. Details on exactly how to get there are at the bottom.

Neat stuff there! At the bottom of your message where you give the instructions how to get to those things, the ARC number that is put in the search should be 278328.
Thanks again

Many thanks for catching that mistake Darren.

My apologies to all for the SNAFU.

<sigh> A brain is a terrible thing to lose.
