EDITORS COMMENTS This print captures a moment frozen in time, showcasing a group portrait on the deck of the majestic RMS Olympic. Standing proudly alongside this iconic ship, which was sister to both the Titanic and Britannic, these individuals exude an air of anticipation and excitement. Commissioned by the renowned White Star Line (also known as the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company), this photograph is a testament to their commitment to preserving memories of maritime history. Taken at Southampton docks, it serves as a poignant reminder of an era when ocean liners were not only vessels for transportation but also symbols of grandeur and luxury. The image transports us back to 1920, where we can almost hear the gentle lapping of waves against the hull and feel the cool sea breeze on our faces. The group poses with pride amidst towering smokestacks and intricate railings that adorn every inch of this magnificent vessel. As we gaze upon their faces, we are left wondering about their stories - who they were, what brought them here? Were they passengers embarking on an adventure or crew members diligently ensuring smooth sailing? Their expressions hold secrets untold. Preserved within Historic England Archive's collection, this print allows us to immerse ourselves in maritime history. It reminds us that beyond its tragic fate lies a legacy that continues to captivate our imagination even today.
