(Above) One of the “E’s” from the bow of the first Mauretania. At the auction of her fittings in 1935, the names on the port and starboard bow were sold as individual letters. Only the name and port of registry on the stern were auctioned as a single lot.
|(Above) A close-up of the
“I-T-A-N” from “Lusitania” on the port bow. Note the massive amount
of damage to the hull just below the name.
