#54711, "RE: Mauretania bridge top mystery structure " In response to In response to 13
How have you been? I hope that you've been doing well. Just a quick question for you: you mentioned that this photograph from the Library of Congress was ca. 1913.
However, it shows no evidence of post-Titanic lifeboats. The reference material on the listing also dates it to sometime between 1907 and 1910. Although not a foolproof method of dating, the neighboring items also seem to come in closely around the time of the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in late 1909 through to 1910, which would be around the time that I would have thought this photo was taken.
So I was curious: was there something specific that led you to believe it was 1913, even though there were no extra lifeboats? Thanks in advance, and take care!
