Please, if someone could tell me where I could find pictures of these ships: (La glorie), and (L'Atlantique). I heard how ugly they were and just have to see for myself!

Greg. Can't you draw the ship Estonia? It would be interesting to see a drawing of that ship.

Best Regards, Mikael

Hope someone out there has a postcard of the old Scythia-this was the ship Lizzie Borden went to Europe aboard in 1890. Also- how many Republics were there? The Irish maid, Bridget Sullivan came over from Ireland on Republic in 1885. I hope Lizzie went First Class!

Hi Shelley,

White Star had two "Republic's". The first was from 1871-1902. The second was from 1903-1909.
Amusingly, USLines also later had a "Republic"... The amusing part being that she was originally laid down at Harland & Wolff in 1903, as The "Scotian", right next to the Dominion Lines vessel "Columbus". "Columbus was transferred within IMM to White Star and renamed "Republic". The "Scotian" was sold on the slips to Norddeutscher Lloyd,renamed "General Grant", confiscated by the Americans in WW-1, and was transferred to USLines where she was renamed "Republic"... Both of these last 2 "Republic's" were about the same size, and looked an awful lot alike. Confusing? yes! Weird? VERY!....

LOL! There ya go!
John.

Thanks John- the first one is the one I'm looking for- now to find a postcard. Juicy story above-who knew? Anything on the Scythia?

Hi Shelley,
There's a shot of the "Scythia" from "Ships of Our Ancestors" (Michael J. Anuta, Genealogical Pub. Co., 1983, 1996 reprint.) The book also has a shot of the first (1871) "Republic". If you'd like, I can scan both and email them to you. (I just tried reducing the "Scythia" pic to a size small enough to post, and it looked awful.)
Best regards!
John.
