Talking about names. Does anybody know if Titanic had "TITANIC" name engraved in her Stern like the bow did?
You can make this out if you look closely at the photo.
There are some black specks or "dots" on the photo . That could be one on the top of the fourth funnel.On the other hand it looks a little like it could be the head of an alien ! LOL.
If it was the head of a person, on blowing up the photo, it looks as if that person would have had to have had a very long and very skinny neck.
My idea is that black "dot" and the others are just pin pricks in the emulsion of the negative that led in light that would cause such black "dots" on the print or enlargement. I am also making an assumption that the photo was made from a "negative" film. Any thing white shows up black and any thing black shows up as white in a photo made from a negative. The photo seems to very much more contrasty than photographs of that time. It's of the Titanic, all right, but I don't see how you could identify any of the individuals. Maybe in the original . Maybe the photographer was lucky and just took it at the instant when the stoker had climbed up the fourth stack and looked over as it was was reported ?
