#55744, "Modifications at New York"
In response to In response to 2


Hi Brad,

Thanks for providing the source for the articles.

The small article describing the work done in New York by Davis-Bournonville is of particular interest, as it may provide the answer to a small mystery. A few years ago Bob Read brought to my attention some photos supposedly taken during the eastbound (New York to Southampton) leg of Olympic's maiden voyage. We were puzzled by the appearance of a Gibb's Extractor vent on the forecastle, since no such vent shows up in photos taken at the time of Olympic's arrival at New York.

The thought that a new vent had been added at New York never occurred to me until I read that your post.

The complete collection of Booth family photos can be seen online at http://cdm9024.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/compoundobject/collection/p15103coll3/id/180/rec/1 (the Olympic pics begin on page 10).
