Eric,

I'm very glad to hear that you've been doing well! Thanks for your feedback on the Library of Congress photo. I've cropped the image to show the whole deck, and there is absolutely no evidence of post-Titanic lifeboats being strewn around the decks anywhere.



Of course, as you point out, they only finalized the lifeboat arrangements much later, but even in the second half of 1912 or 1913, lifeboats were visible all over the decks, and they are nowhere to be seen here. Unless there is further data in the image that I've missed, I strongly suspect it's a late 1909-1910 shot from what I'm seeing here.

As regards the other photos, the "post-maiden voyage" photo in New York appears to be just that, taken during her first stay in that port. The clue, to me (not shown in the cropping I posted), is the status of repainting the hull visible in the photo, which is a dead match for the repainting sequence seen after the maiden voyage arrival at that port, since the paint had worn off the bow during the crossing. Unless you had noticed something else of import?

On the bow-on early shot, I would definitely tend to agree with you... possibly late 1907, but more likely early 1908. Thanks again for your feedback, and take care!

Regards,
J. Kent Layton
