Hi again
Some images from my collection. The first unpublished original photograph was taken by John Crape of Crape Confectioners and sent to himself, and shows the bridge at the time of her first public inspection - workers and their families. I have a neat postcard that describes this, and gives the cost to get aboard and how many people visited her. The second image is from a sharp W&Co card postmarked Liverpool at 7:30pm on November 16th, 1907 and which bears a message describing her maiden departure for NY. Both seem to show a lower platform. I will search for more. I see the difference in the angle of incidence for these two photographers, but one might expect some of this platform to show, especially on the Crape photograph. As I mentioned in the above post, I am now wondering if it was raised and then lowered after the war.
