"2) "Garish colour of the photograph"
....Furthermore, prior to the introduction of Kodachrome colour film in 1935 there are NO genuine 1st generation colour images of ANY White Star Line vessel." - Nigel

Hi Nigel,

Colour photography of one sort or another has been around for quite some time...even Dufay Color was in use and on cellulose motion picture film (not glass plates) before 1935. Color photography of several types since 1853 - with prints on paper as well. Lumiere Autochromes represented another step toward true color imagery and the results were simply phenomenal. Although commercially available in the USA in 1907, the process was in use for some time in Europe. One man alone took tens of thousands of color plates in and around London from C. 1912 to about 1930. Color images of these ships will continue to surface; I have been saying so here long before the Clifton Adams Mauretania Autochromes were "found". I know of a few painters, some many defer to, who have seen the November 1928 Autochrome (newly scanned as it is) that shows the Mauretania and a bit of the Olympic and they (and I) agree that the colors depicted represent the exact color of Cunard "orange" and the WSL buff is as close as you are going to get until more surface. I believe this Autochrome WSL buff to be nearly as accurate as can be understood today, and a good match to what was sketched by Lord firsthand IIRC. This with the caveat that all our monitors are set to different Gamma and white balance etc. If WSL buff was different in 1912 and again after the merger is another discussion.

Best wishes,
Eric
