Hi Kent,

Good to hear from you. I have been OK. Great photos Kent, and excellent observations Ralph. It appears a vent prevented the single staircase on Lusi.
In haste here and under much stress - first, I must correct the date of the Mauretania photograph I have shown above as October 22, 1907. That is actually October 24th. The 1913 date - I honestly can't recall right now what I spotted, but the lifeboat changes to Mauretania after the loss of Titanic were an unsettled matter until shortly after November 1913 from my photographs - up till then the boat deck aft and by the 2nd Class deck house was strewn with rafts that don't really show up well in profile. Look at some photographs of her at Gladstone following the cylinder explosion, Feb/Mar 1914. She still appears to have her original compliment - I might guess it was at this time and location her additional boats were properly installed as all seems fine by August 6th in Halifax. BTW, the one photo you showed without a date must predate August 1918 as the forward bulwarks are still curved - if I recall the image it is closer to 1908 or so and at the stage? The image labeled post-maiden voyage is third arrival, NY, IIRC. Your July 1932 shows what appears to be light-painted bridge doors - black hull, yes?

Best wishes,
Eric

PS - Finally figured when and where her bow guns were removed. A ton of WW1 stuff coming with some new data as well.
