Three postcards showing Titanic being built, at sea, and striking iceberg: real photo of the Titanic in Belfast being fitted out. The ship is high in the water, workers are seen on the dock, and a large construction shack is seen directly under the stern mast; same postcard with portrait of Captain Smith added to an artist’s addition of water to cover the dock, giving it the appearance of being at sea; and a postcard featuring the caption, ‘Titanic As She Rammed Iceberg,” featuring a similar scene to the second postcard, with an artist adding the scene of the ship hitting the huge iceberg head-on. Silvering to one of the cards and scattered light foxing to another. RRAuction COA.
