On page 30 of 882 1/2 Amazing Answers to your Questions about the Titanic, by Hugh Brewster and Laurie Coulter, which I recently checked out of the library, there is a picture of a girl riding a mechanical horse in the Titainc's gym. She has a very short 'bob' haircut, a dark dress, very tall boots and looks to be in her early teens. There is a crew member behind her. I was wondering if anyone could confirm the identity of this girl. I was thinking it might be Lucile Carter or possibly even Jean Hippach since it looks a lot like her. I also thought that it could be somebody in the Olympic's Gym and therefore the passenger would not be on the Titanic at all. In the back of the book it says that the picture is from the Ken Marshall collection. Any help would much be appreciated, and thanks in advance,
Holly

I don't have that book, but I believe the picture you've described is a still frame from a promotional film featuring the Olympic. It was made around ten years after the Titanic was lost.
