This photograph was long believed to show Captain Smith and some officers from RMS Titanic.
However, it actually shows Captain Smith and 8 of his officers from when he captained RMS Olympic. In order of left to right:
- Standing: Purser Hugh McElroy, Third Officer Henry O. Cater, Second Officer R. Hume, Fourth Officer David W. Alexander, Sixth Officer Harold H. Holehouse.
- Seated: Fifth Officer A. Tulloch, Chief Officer Joseph Evans, Captain Edward Smith and First Officer William Murdoch.
Is there a similar photograph for Captain Smith and his officers for RMS Titanic?
This is the old problem of proving a negative, but there is no evidence for a known group photo showing all of the Titanic's deck officers. Given the large number of Titanic books, sites and "enthusiasts", it seems highly improbable that such a photo would not have appeared somewhere online.
Further, one officer only joined the Titanic shortly before she sailed; while this does not make it impossible for a photo to have been taken before departure, the time frame was limited.
The Life and Mystery of William Murdoch, a website dedicated to the aforementioned First Officer of the Titanic, asserts
Although you may find photographs labelled "Titanic's Officers" the fact is that there is no known group photograph of Titanic's officer's prior to or during her fateful voyage.
Similarly, Inger Sheil, a Titanic researcher and author of Titanic Valour: The Life of Fifth Officer Harold Lowe has stated in the Encyclopedia Titanica forum Titanic Photographs & other Images that there is no photo of all the officers which has been made public and that
if such a photo was taken it is either no longer extant or exists in a private collection.
The surviving, known photo with the most Titanic deck officers in it would appear to be one that was taken of the four surviving officers. The colorized photo below was made possible
thanks to Board of Trade applications and certificates recently released to the public by The National Maritime Museum
we can discover the height, eye colour, skin colour and any 'percularities' (such as tattoos) that each officer wrote in their application

The 'original', larger, black and white photo can be seen here. For completion, the deck officers not in the photo above who went down with the Titanic were Captain Edward Smith, Chief Officer Henry Wilde, First Officer William Murdoch and Sixth Officer James Moody. Thus, in the OP's photo, only Smith, Murdoch and the purser Hugh McElroy were on the Titanic.
There is also this photo below, supposedly the last showing Captain Smith (I say 'supposedly' because the source is unclear).
Note that the purser and doctor do not count as 'deck officers'. Image source
An article in the Irish Post relates how David Blair, who was supposed to sail on the Titanic as Second Officer, was reassigned when Henry Tingle Wilde was brought on board as Chief Officer. Tingle only boarded the Titanic at 6am on the 10th of April, six hours before she sailed. Although it is not impossible that a group photo was taken, Captain Smith and his officers may well have felt that they had better things to do than pose for photos on the morning of the departure of what was then the world's largest ship.
I decided to collect some Titanic related fake or otherwise misleading photos although these have been debunked many times.
1) One of the most commonly used picture is actually a photo of the RMS Queen Mary, 1934. More details: HoaxOfFame. Debunked by @PicPedant on Twitter.
2) The following photo is often titled as “The last known photo of the Titanic”
That is not true. The last photo of the Titanic was taken by John Morrogh at Red Bay, Crosshaven, after the vessel had left Queenstown.
3) This photo below is often titled as “The Grand Staircase of the Titanic, 1912”
That is the grand staircase of the RMS Olympic. There are no original photographs of the one in Titanic.
4) Next one is often shared as a photo of Titanic’s propellers
That is a photo of the RMS Mauretania taken in Canada Dock in Liverpool, 1909.
In fact, there are no known photographs of Titanic’s propellers in place. The next often miscaptioned photo shows the propellers of the Titanic’s sister ship, RMS Olympic.
5) This photo is generally shared as the The first class lounge on board Titanic, 1912
It is in fact a photo of the first class lounge of the RMS Olympic taken in 1911. Thanks to Jamie Angus for pointing this out.
Titanic and Olympic were nearly identical sister ships. No photos of Titanic’s lounge are known to exist. You can find many photos of the Olympic online. See also: That’s not Titanic blog.
6) This photo is often shared with a title “Anchor Men – Titanic”
More accurate title: “Anchor Men – RMS Mauretania”. Source: Wikipedia. Photo via Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums.
7) This photo is often shared as Titanic’s First Class Suite
That is not a real photo of the first class suite aboard the Titanic. It is a recreation of the Sitting Room B51 probably from one of the Titanic exhibitions.
This photograph is most likely copied from a book “Titanic: The Myths and Legacy of a Disaster” by Roger and June Cartwright.
Below is one real photo of the same room aboard the Titanic:
8) Last known photograph of the Titanic on the surface of the ocean
There is a claim that the photo below, taken by Francis Browne, is the last known photograph of the Titanic.
That is not true. The last photograph of the Titanic was taken at Crosshaven, Co Cork, Ireland, just after the vessel departed Queenstown:
9) Titanic “was the first 9/11”
There is a conspiracy theory that the Titanic accident was staged. It is not true – just like it is untrue and unproven that 9/11 terrorist attack was an insider job.
One part of the conspiracy theory claims that it was the Olympic, not the Titanic that sank. This claim was backed up by footage of the wreck hull showing letters MP. All this is complete nonsense. Suggested reading: Debunked: Conspiracy of the Titanic, first staged 9-11.
10) Canine casualties
The next photo is often shared with a false caption: Dogs which survived the Titanic disaster.
Unfortunately these dogs didn’t make it. Three other dogs did survive: two Pomeranian and one Pekinese.
11) Titanic in Southampton, 1912
Some history accounts claim that the next photo shows Titanic in Southampton, 1912
That is actually a movie replica at the Southampton dock.
12) 1st class dining saloon of Titanic
This photo is often shared as the 1st class dining saloon of Titanic:
That is actually the 1st class dining saloon of the RMS Olympic. There is only one known photograph of the dining saloon of Titanic, taken by Francis Browne:
13) Titanic crew
The next photo is often linked to Titanic disaster:
That is actually a photo of RMS Olympic’s officers. On the right is Edward Smith who later became the captain of the Titanic. Source: Getty Images.
By 2:20 a.m., the stern of the Titanic slipped under water, and the surviving passengers never saw it again.
After just an hour, the ship was quickly filling with water, and passengers were panicked. Due to the water, the ship's bow continued to sink, causing the stern to rise into the sky.
By 2 a.m., the crew was released by the captain. Shortly after, the Titanic's lights went out, the ship broke into two pieces, and the bow sank beneath the waves. Twenty minutes later, the stern followed suit, sending hundreds of crewmembers and passengers into the sea.
The first and original story of the last Olympic Class liner, Britannic.
Hostage to Fortune
by Simon Mills
Published by Wordsmith Publications, UK
Simon Mills’ authoritative book tells how Britannic was a masterpiece of marine technology but was never designed for the stage that sealed her fate.
Eclipsed at birth in life and at her passing by circumstances beyond her control, Britannic was very much a hostage to the events of her time. She would never escape from the shadow of her more notorious sister, Titanic, and the destiny of Great Britain’s largest ship of her era would be played out on an altogether different arena. Nevertheless her story has a powerful drama of its own and it is only now that previous forgotten personal papers and diaries shed a new light on the human story of the last Olympian.
Foreword by Dr. Robert Ballard. Includes a large fold-out rigging plan showing her original design. A longitudinal section deck plans A, B, C, D,E, F, G and tank top. 224 pages. Highly illustrated in color and black and white. Hardcover with dust jacket.

8 The Wreck Of The Titan
In 1898, author Morgan Robertson wrote The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility. The plot was all too familiar. Robertson had written about a ship, the Titan, going on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic that struck an iceberg and sank. The liner did not have enough lifeboats, and it was described as being &ldquounsinkable,&rdquo seeing as it was the biggest ship of its day. Um, this is all too familiar . . . and the story was written 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic.
Many wondered if Robertson was a prescient writer, but others said he just knew what he was talking about since he wrote mainly about maritime affairs. Perhaps he saw ocean liners becoming bigger and bigger and wondered about the dangers of this, including icebergs. Robertson was approached and asked if he was clairvoyant after the sinking of the Titanic. &ldquoNo,&rdquo he replied, &ldquoI know what I&rsquom writing about, that&rsquos all.&rdquo 
Thermal Inversion and the Titanic
Titanic sank in the freezing waters of the Labrador Current in the North Atlantic, surrounded by dozens of large icebergs, some of which were 200 feet high. But above the level of the top of those icebergs much warmer air drifted across from the nearby warmer waters of the Gulf Stream, trapping cold air underneath it.
This created the same thermal inversion conditions at Titanic’s crash site as occurred along the coast of Britain in early 2021, creating apparent fog banks or “sea hedges” above which ships appeared to float in the sky, despite the perfectly clear weather.
In fact several ships which passed through the area in which Titanic sank, both before and after the Titanic tragedy, recorded abnormal refraction and mirages at the horizon.
The night the Titanic sank was also calm and clear, but Titanic’s lookouts noticed the mirage strip appearing like a band of haze stretching all around the horizon, as they entered the thermal inversion in the ice region.
Titanic did not slow down because the weather was so clear that her officers expected to see ice in time to avoid it. But the optical effect of the apparent fog bank around the horizon reduced the contrast between the icebergs and the sky and sea beyond them.
This caused Titanic’s lookouts to see the fatal iceberg a few seconds too late, as the berg suddenly appeared as a dark mass out of the peculiar haze in front of them. Titanic’s lookout, Reginald Lee, explained the dramatic moment under cross-examination at the Inquiry into the sinking of the Titanic:
What sort of a night was it?
– A clear, starry night overhead, but at the time of the accident there was a haze right ahead – in fact it was extending more or less round the horizon. There was no moon.
And no wind?
– And no wind whatever, barring what the ship made herself.
Quite a calm sea?
– Quite a calm sea.
Was it cold?
– Very, freezing.

Did you notice this haze which you said extended on the horizon when you first came on the look-out, or did it come later?
– It was not so distinct then – not to be noticed. You did not really notice it then – not on going on watch, but we had all our work cut out to pierce through it just after we started. My mate happened to pass the remark to me. He said, “Well if we can see through that we will be lucky.” That was when we began to notice there was a haze on the water. There was nothing in sight.
You had been told, of course, to keep a careful look-out for ice, and you were trying to pierce the haze as much as you could?
– Yes, to see as much as we could.
What did the iceberg look like?
– It was a dark mass that came through that haze and there was no white appearing until it was just close alongside the ship, and that was just a fringe at the top.
It was a dark mass that appeared, you say?
– Through this haze, and as she moved away from it, there was just a white fringe along the top.
Quite right that is where she hit, but can you tell us how far the iceberg was from you, this mass that you saw?
– It might have been half a mile or more it might have been less I could not give you the distance in that peculiar light.
The Wreck Commissioner:
I mean the evidence before and after the accident is that the sky was perfectly clear, and therefore if the evidence of the haze is to be accepted, it must have been some extraordinary natural phenomenon…
Unfortunately Titanic’s lookouts were not believed, but these recent photographs of ‘flying ships’ show the unusual atmospheric phenomenon which caught out Titanic’s experienced officers.
‘Flying ship’ phenomenon observed at Aberdeen during the Scottish Golf Tournament in July 2014.
But Did He Really Die?
Stranger still are several widely publicized reports that he didn’t die at all. For example, three months after the Titanic disaster, in July 1912, a Baltimore man named Peter Pryal reported seeing Smith on the streets of that city. Pryal was no ordinary crank, but a highly regarded local businessman who claimed to have been an officer aboard the White Star liner Majestic some 30 years before, when Smith was its captain. In addition, Pryal’s doctor attested that he was solutely sane and not given to hallucinations.”
In fact, Pryal said he had seen Smith twice, once on a Wednesday and again the following Saturday, when he returned to the same spot to look for him. After an hour of waiting, he said he saw Smith coming, approached him, and asked him how we was. “Very well, Pryal,” the man supposedly answered, 𠇋ut please don’t detain me. I am on business.”
Pryal said he trailed Smith to a train station. Just before he boarded a train to Washington, Pryal reported, the man smiled at him and said, good, shipmate, until we meet again.”
“There is no possibility I am mistaken.” Pryal told a reporter. “I would know him even without his beard.”
Smith was back in the news in 1940, when a letter in Life magazine suggested that the captain had ended his days as an elderly derelict in Lima, Ohio, known as “Silent Smith.” Among the evidence: The man had arrived in town three years after the Titanic disaster, would only give his name as Smith, was about Smith’s age and size, and bore the sort of tattoos common among seafarers. Life seems to have been unaware that immediately after Silent Smith’s death in 1915, the Lima News had identified the man as one Michael McKenna.

When anyone asks me how I can best describe my experience in nearly forty years at sea, I merely say, uneventful. Of course there have been winter gales, and storms and fog and the like. But in all my experience, I have never been in any accident… or any sort worth speaking about. I have seen but one vessel in distress in all my years at sea. I never saw a wreck and never have been wrecked nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort. - Captain E.J. Smith, Captain of the RMS Titanic
Were Jack and Rose based on real people?
I heard there was a J. Dawson on board the Titanic, is that true?
Who sketched Jack's drawing of Rose that we see in the movie Titanic?
Were the movie's underwater shots of the Titanic wreckage real?
Were any of Pablo Picasso's paintings lost with the Titanic?
No. After Rose (Kate Winslet) boards the ship in the movie, we see her displaying authentic paintings by the then barely-known painter, Pablo Picasso. Cal (Billy Zane) comments that the artist will never amount to anything. This is an obvious point of humor in the movie, but it also raises the question as to whether or not these paintings were in fact part of Titanic history. The answer is no. One of the paintings shown in the movie is Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" ( shown here), which depicts five prostitutes in a brothel. It is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Were there any black passengers on board the Titanic?
During the U.S. Senate's Inquiry into the disaster, Bruce Ismay, the Managing Director of the White Star Line, said the following, "I understand it has been stated that the ship was going at full speed. The ship never had been at full speed. The full speed of the ship is 78 revolutions. She works up to 80. So far as I am aware, she never exceeded 75 revolutions. She had not all her boilers on. None of the single-ended boilers were on." Ismay said that it was their intention to work the ship up to its full speed of 80 revolutions either on the next day (Monday) or two days later (Tuesday), depending on the weather.
Surviving passengers stated that they heard Bruce Ismay pressuring Captain Edward J. Smith to go faster, with one passenger even stating that he saw Ismay flaunting an iceberg warning during dinner. However, none of the surviving officers supported these accusations, and survivor testimony from some passengers was considered unreliable and at worst imaginative. Bruce Ismay was crucified by the newspapers for leaving the ship, and he quickly became a common target upon which to place blame. Yet, it is also possible that the testimony from the surviving officers, exonerating Ismay, was given in the best interest of White Star Line.
Did pieces of ice from the iceberg really land on the promenade deck?
Did the Titanic's band continue to play as the ship went under?
Yes, but not exactly in the way that the film implies. Titanic history tells us that gates did exist which barred the third class passengers from the other passengers. However, these gates weren't in place to stop a third class passenger from taking a first class passenger's seat on a lifeboat. Instead, the gates were in place as a regulatory measure to prevent the "less cleanly" third class passengers from transmitting diseases and infections to the others. This would save time when the ship arrived in New York, as only the third class passengers would need a health inspection.
At the time of the sinking, some stewards kept gates locked waiting for instructions, while others allowed women and children to the upper decks. As a result of poor communication from the upper decks, the dire reality of the situation was never conveyed. The crew failed to search for passengers in the cabins and common areas, and the fact that some third class passengers did not speak English, also presented a problem. As a result, many of the third class passengers were left to fend for themselves. Only 25 percent of the third class passengers survived the disaster.
Did Officer Murdoch really commit suicide after shooting passengers and accepting a bribe?
Did one of Titanic's giant funnels really crash down into the water?
Did some of the passengers choose to go down with the ship?
Did Captain Smith really go into the bridge to await his fate?
In Robert Ballard's book, The Discovery of the Titanic, he claims that Captain Smith went into the bridge to await his fate at 2:17 A.M., three minutes before the ship went under completely. View a photo of Captain Smith. This may have been partially based on the account of Philadelphia banker Robert W. Daniel, who claimed that just before he jumped into the water, he saw Captain Smith on the bridge, which was slowly being swallowed by the icy sea. James Cameron supports this account in his 1997 movie Titanic by showing Captain Smith enter the bridge and grasp the wheel as water crashes in. While some survivors testified that they saw Captain Smith enter the bridge, other Titanic survivors said that they saw Captain Smith in the water with a life jacket. It is possible that he may have jumped from the bridge area as the ship went down. A boy who was one of the last children to leave the ship told Dr. J.F. Kemp, a passenger on the Carpathia, that "Captain Smith put a pistol to his head and then fell down." Other witnesses reported having seen Captain Smith commit suicide as well. Surviving crewmen vigorously denied the possibility. His body was never recovered.
Did the Titanic's lights continue to burn until just before the ship went under?
Did the Titanic really break apart as it sunk?
Yes. For years, whether the Titanic broke apart as it went under was a highly debated element of Titanic history. Some survivors testified that the ship did break apart as it sunk, while others said that it went under intact. Much of the uncertainty surrounding this was put to rest in 1985 when the wreck of the Titanic was discovered in two separate portions on the sea bottom. It is very likely that the ship broke apart much like the movie's depiction.
Were any of the passengers rescued from the water like Rose?
How did Margaret Brown get the nickname "Unsinkable Molly Brown"?
When the Carpathia arrived at New York's pier 54, over 30,000 people, including reporters, clamored to interview the Titanic survivors. When reporters asked Margaret Brown to what she attributed her survival, Margaret replied, "Typical Brown luck. We're unsinkable." Reporters began referring to her as the "Unsinkable Mrs. Brown". See a photo collage of Margaret "Molly" Brown. The nickname of "Molly" was a Hollywood invention created years later in the 1930s. It was part of a highly fictional tale that became the basis for the 1960 Broadway musical, The Unsinkable Molly Brown. In the movie Titanic, we get a glimpse of the friendship between Margaret Brown and John Jacob Astor. Before boarding the ship, Margaret had been traveling with J.J. Astor and his wife Madeline in Cairo, Egypt. Margaret booked a First Class passage on the Titanic after learning that her grandson Lawrence was ill.
How long could the people have remained alive in the water?
How many people were rescued by the Carpathia?
Did Bruce Ismay really sneak into a lifeboat like in the movie Titanic?
No. There are no reports of Bruce Ismay disguising himself as a woman to sneak into a lifeboat as he does in the movie. However, First Class Passenger Jack Thayer said that he saw Bruce Ismay pushing his way into Collapsible C. Thayer "did not blame him," because from what Thayer could see, "It was really every man for himself." Of the 58 men who survived, Bruce Ismay, the Managing Director of the White Star Line, received the most criticism, and in 1913, Ismay resigned from his job and from public life. London society labeled Bruce Ismay one of the biggest cowards in history, and both the American and English press ruthlessly attacked him. Some papers even published cartoons of Ismay deserting the ship.
Was the Heart of the Ocean (Coeur de la Mer) a real diamond?
Can I visit the Titanic movie set?
Yes. The set, located at Fox's Baja Studios in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, still exists. The nearly full-scale Titanic replica created for the film was badly damaged when the filmmakers submerged it underwater to recreate the sinking. It was dismantled after filming wrapped. However, several of the Titanic interiors are still there, including Rose's 1st class stateroom, Jack's 3rd class stateroom, the purser's office (where Jack was handcuffed to the pipe), the outside deck, and the Palm Court (dining) room. Tours are available to the public.
Like the original ship, the replica (when it existed) was 60 feet from the boat deck to the water. Certain repetitive lengthwise sections of the ship were omitted, which made it shorter than the original 882.5 foot ship. The movie ship had only been completed on one side. As a result, there are several scenes in which the ship is reversed, such as in the "I'm the king of the world" scene where the crew galley skylight gives the reversal away. Very few of the ship's interiors were built into the replica's framework itself. Most were built on neighboring sound stages. The set designs, costumes and the ship itself were meticulously recreated. View a comparison photo of Titanic's Grand Staircase. In several cases, James Cameron even hired the original manufacturers to reproduce such things as carpets and lifeboat davits.
Survivors from Southampton, UK talk about their experiences on the night of the Titanic disaster. The last audio clip features Southampton local Iris Lee telling her story of how her father gave up his position on the Titanic. She explains that he was too shook up to go after discovering a human head floating by while at work in the docks.

In our first selection below, take a journey into history by watching a compilation of real Titanic video footage. See the actual ship and the real Captain Edward J. Smith on the bridge prior to leaving. Witness the aftermath as the Carpathia returns with survivors.
7. Hundreds of Titanic survivors were rescued—but more than a thousand perished.
The nearest ship, a merchant vessel called the Californian, was fewer than 10 miles away from the Titanic when it began sinking, but it failed to act on the liner's distress signals—its Marconi wireless operator had gone to bed minutes before the Titanic's collision with the iceberg. That left the Cunard passenger steamship Carpathia, 58 miles away, to come to the Titanic's aid. It took almost two hours to reach the first Titanic survivors.
Of the 2201 passengers and crew on board, just 711 survived the Titanic sinking, a death toll of 1490 according to the British government's figures. (Other inquiries found 1503, 1517, and as high as 1635 deaths). First-class passengers suffered the fewest casualties—203 out of 325, or 62 percent, survived. In second class, 118 of 285 passengers, or 41 percent, survived. And in third class, just 178 of 706 passengers, or 25 percent, made it out alive.
Of the crew, 673 out of 885, or 76 percent, went down with the ship, including Captain Edward Smith, First Mate William Murdoch, the Marconi wireless operator Jack Phillips, who sent the CQD and SOS distress signals, and all eight members of the Titanic's band.
