Awesome World Travels Photo Album 1911 Pics From Belfast Of "titanic" & Olympic :
This has to be the most fascinating photo albums I've ever come across. It looks as though the family, a couple and their son of this photo album were in the right place at the right time in Belfast Ireland 1911. Most likely around the end of Sep 1911. They managed to capture 3 pictures of the Titanic sitting in the Belfast shipyard without it's Funnel's (smokestacks) attached yet. They also managed to get some pictures of the H.M.S. Hawke and damage pics of the Olympic. It also looks like pics of them maybe coming into port? There is also pics of the Olympic and a picture on board the Olympic. Picture of the Olympic saying farewell, possibly after it was repaired. I thought about separating these photos from the album, but it tells a story of this family and I'm keeping it together. There are also many other wonderful World Travels pictures in this album.There are 669 photos, at least that's what's marked on the first page. On the first page it's written "The Start" March 11, 1911 with a wonderful Locomotive engine picture. Pics from the Grand Canyon, Indian Village New Mexico, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York, Boston, Harvard College, Wellesley, Pictures on a boat or ship named the "Canopie" These are interesting pics. One gentleman by the name of Mr. Kellogg, Porta Delgada "Azores", Gibualtar navy yard and HMS Prince of Wales Battle ship, Algiers, Naples Italy, Pompeii, Rome, Trip to Dublin, Florence, Pisa, Venice, Battle ships docked in Venice of the Victor Emmanuel, Cruiser SS Principe Umberto (sunk in ww I) , Lido, Milan, Italian lakes, Simplon Pass, Gornergrat, Interlaken, Paris, Versailles France, Pictures at the Grand Prix race track, Malmaison, Robinson France, Chantilly, Cologne, German Rhine with steam boats, Heidelberg, Karlstadt Germany, Berlin, London, Stoke Poyes, The Thames, Windsor castle, Oxford, Warwick Castle, Kenilworth, Chester, Isle of Man, English Lake region, Melrose, Caledonian Canel, Scotland, Oban, Ierland, Belfast, Phoenix Park Dublin, Killarney, Banff Canada, Seattle, Portland, A Hotel in Los Angeles was their last stop.
