Questions

1.   Ann Passeri who sent me the photograph above is hoping to find the name of the person in this photo, or at least to be able to find some information about the uniform.

2.  The White Star Line labels on the back of the cabinet print are interesting.  Do these imply that Brown, Barnes & Bell had some arrangement to take photographs on board White Star Line cruise ships, and if so over what period?

If you have any views on these questions, please e-mail me.

Thank you:

Labels on the Photo

The labels do not really evidence any tie up with the shipping line.  The subject is apparently a sailor from the ship (I cannot identify the uniform but does the cap badge match the shipping line emblem? )

I suspect that the labels are to do with other passenger matters (one says attach to a post card and etc - probably asking the customer to send something back re the proposed cruise).

The (sticky) labels were probably  just readily available to the uniformed sitter and were used to mount the photo to a board for framing (the picture looks as if it has been framed.)
