Olympic Class Authentic Color Photographs


I am doing research on the Olympic class to gain some knowledge on the ships.

I was wondering if anyone knows if there were any photographs taken of the Titanic, Olympic, or Britannia that were in color? I have found several photographs which are photoshopped to show black and white images in color, but I want to know if there are any authentic colored photos of any of the three ships.

Also, a bonus question, were there any official photos of the Britannic and Olympic side by side?


Heya, sorry to disappoint but I don’t think any color photos exist, naturally. Color photography got a kick off in 1907 but was expensive and not popularly used yet for general use.
oh also, it might’ve been autocorrect but it’s the Britannic. All WSL ships end in a IC and all Cunards in IA.
Hope this is helpful!
There is at last one of Olympic, which is in the background and Mauretania in the floating dock ca. 1929.
