Vintage Type II photograph picturing several Titanic lifeboats secured onboard the Carpathia. One of the main reasons why the Titanic disaster resulted in the loss of so many lives was the inadequate number of lifeboats, only 16, that it carried. Seven of those 16 are captured in this photo taken shortly after the Carpathia docked. Three Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse, along with a handwritten caption reading “Titanic Life Boats on the Carpathia.” The photo measures 7x5” and displays a few tiny border creases. EX. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. Accompanied by a full LOA from PSA.
