Some people have expressed an interest in the photographs which show the Olympic & Titanic together. From my research over the years — I have seen 13 individual images.
Over the next few weeks — I will post a diagram showing the position of both ships & the photographer who took the image.
The photographer’s position is indicated by the red box. The diagram shows Harland & Wolff frame H-1706 taken by Robert J. Welsh.

Michael, it appears to be tidal marsh or swamp from what I could make out from different photographs.

Bill, I had a few spare nights with nothing to do. I really did the diagrams to plot the photographs positions over that period.
I'm happy to share the information.

Boz, most of the images are on a TRMA link.

Interesting, Steve. I notice that Titanic hadn't been fitted with its enclosed promenade at this point, which, in my opinion, is the key as to what has caused confusion for people all this time, wondering which was which. Thanks for clearing that up.

Hi. if you go on Google and type in OLYMPIC, TITANIC AND BRITANNIC. It comes up with an ace painting of all 3 of them together-Never really happened of course, but oh well!
