Hi Ralph, Jason,

Here are some images showing the canvas after coaling and during coaling - I have many more, but these two are sharp, clear and early. The first shows her after her first arrival at Liverpool on October 24th, 1907 - this date is confirmed by the Peskett album sold by Kenny Schultz many years ago. I recall that candid mentioned a "jolly trip" on her "North About" delivery trip which I wrote about in my article at Eric Sauder's site (Figure 20, linked below).

I have a rare photocard (not shown here) showing the coaling at Liverpool - taken just after, perhaps for the coming trials. I would also say perhaps MV, but that barge with "Cunard" on the side is there, and it is in three Oct. 24th images including the one shown here:


I had to correct the date of the Liverpool image. I was thinking 22nd for some reason, but it actually shows the morning of October 24th.
The second photocard I identified as November 3rd on formal trials, also showing the canvas and coaling in progress. This was a Priestley Brothers image and is very, very scarce.

Best,
Eric
