Young Titanic passenger Douglas Spedden looks out of a promenade window as a seaman stands his post. (most likely asked to pose for the photo)
* Note - Three years later, (1915) after surviving the Titanic disaster, nine-year old Douglas Spedden was killed when struck by a car near the family's summer home in Main. This became the first fatality motor vehicle accident recorded in the state of Main.
(Far Right) A grim photo of the rescue ship Carpathia returning to New York. All that remained of Titanic were her lifeboats seen being lowered here at the White Star Pier. Titanic survivors can be seen along the rails of the Carpathia observing.
(Below) All that remained of the great liner was her 13 lifeboats.
* 1912 Souvenir Hunters - The very evening Carpathia delivered these boats at the White Star Line dock in New York, souvenir hunters stripped the boats of their oars, oar locks, life vests, any remaining provisions, compasses and lamps. Even the wooden name plates fixed on the bows of the boats that read: S.S. Titanic were pried off. One of these name plates was recently sold on eBayŽ for $17,000.
Webmasters note - It kind of reminds me of people picking up remains of the Space Shuttle Columbia and trying to sell them on eBayŽ. I guess people haven't changed that much after all in the last 92 years.

Lifeboat davit 1 is still swung out as if ready to lower another boat.

* Rare Film footage of Titanic?
* Possibly Titanic. If so, promenade glass not yet fitted. Could be Olympic. (Requires RealPlayer)
