    Alright, this is my first post here. So, I saw this image of the Titanic departing from Southampton to start it's maiden voyage, and I noticed the bow of another ship in front of the Titanic and docked in said image. (It's on the far right.)

    How come I'm the only one who has noticed this? What ship is that? Could it possibly be the New York or the Oceanic? Because both ships were docked at Southampton when the Titanic was departing. I would be delighted if someone could let me know. Thanks.
  2. That would be Oceanic. The photo was taken when Titanic was stopped due to the near collision with New York. For reference I am including a link to another photo taken shortly after this one, from a different angle, when Titanic was under way again. You can see Oceanic on the far left of the photo and the funnels visible behind Titanic are those of New York, where she was moved to after the tugboats restrained her after breaking free of her moorings.
