Rare photograph of 'Captain Smith' to be auctioned


The gentleman is dour-looking, so maybe it is Smith.

It isn't. I have shared the photograph with various Titanic researchers and historians and not found one person who thinks it is Smith. Notably, a talented portrait artist who confirmed the facial proportions are completely different.

The total lack of provenance should be a clue really.

But that didn't stop someone paying £750 for it!

Hell, I think I'm a better ringer for the Captain than this fellow.
