How many known published photos are there of Thomas Andrews from his adult years? I know of only three, the same two posed ones that are in nearly every Titanic book-the sitting and standing ones-and the one of him with wife and child outside their home. Are there any more out there?

mike.

I recently got hold of a nice one but he is sitting down in it and I think it is the one you are already referring too
Sad
There must be more somewhere!

Hi, Mike:

You might want to try the Ulster Titanic Society web site. Jim Carlisle had added a rare (but very small) mustachioed view of Andrews there. (Also, I believe the apprentices photo is there, which includes young Tom.)

Cheers,

Mike Bull,

On page 12 of "Titanic The Truth Behind The Disaster" by Peter Thresh is a photo of Thomas Andrews, Major Archie b*** and Lord Pirrie. The photo has Thomas Andrews aged. I've never seen an aged photo of Andrews before.

Yet another incorrectly captioned Thresh photo...!

That book's as reliable as a two-bob watch.

Hi Inger,

I agree with your assessment of the Thresh book. Apart from several good photographs (incuding a very clear one of Andrews) I'm afraid it's up there with Gardiner and Co! The most laughable error IMO has to be the caption that Mrs. Ismay survived the sinking!

Mike -- I recall there are several good Andrews pics in "Titanic; Journey Through Time" by Eaton & Haas, including one of Tom as a young apprentice at Harland and Wolff. This may be the one John refers to.

Regards,
Ben

Ben,

I saw that statement of Mrs. Ismay surviving the sinking and thought, "Who on earth could have made such a stupid error!!!" Someone must have taken too much NyQuil that day.

I too, found that photo of "Andrews" quite unbelievable! I knew at the time of the sinking he wasn't as old as the picture portrays him to be, so I was very confused. I don't understand how ANYONE can get a picture wrong, is beyond me. Maybe since he didn't know who it was but wanted the picture in his book anyways he guessed as to who the man was.

But Thresh did give lots of info on RMSTI and there's a picture of Tulloch in there which I've wanted to see, even though its a fairly old one.

Hi Teri,

I knew at the time of the sinking he wasn't as old as the picture portrays him to be

Which begs the question, "Who is the man on the left?" Any ideas anyone?

For me -I think there are at least 10 or
so -pictures that include or show Mr Andrews
And majority of us know only of 3-4 of 'em.

Best Regards

Does the 3-4 known to the majority pictures happen to include the one of Andrews holding his daughter, and his wife standing to his left? I hope so, as for me, that is his best photograph, because you see him as more than just the designer.
