Photo Details

A photo of the Titanic supposedly taken in May 1911 or April 16 1912. She wasn't finished in 1911 (her first test cruise was just days before she sailed on April 10 1912) and she sunk on April 15, 1912 so neither of these dates is correct. She is certainly impressive, though. I don't see her smokestacks so . . . if anyone has other ideas, please let us know. This photo was labeled "The Titanic."
