I attempted to repair the damage but it was no use and so I had to divide the page into different sections. I've included images of the album page before its damage.PLEASE NOTE: Thomas Andrews' autograph itself was split but has been repaired (albeit with sellotape) however it is in acceptable condition and will not deteriorate further. I paired Thomas Andrews' autograph up with a contemporary postcard of him which was published by Lafayette, Belfast, just after Titanic's sinking.
I have framed the two together. The postcard, which is exceptionally rare, is in excellent condition.
Also, included with this lot is a photo of the married couple whose wedding Thomas Andrews attended on the 4th of April 1905. The couple were Edith Carlisle (daughter of Alexander Carlisle and niece of Lord Pirrie , both of whom were instrumental in the Olympic classes' design and construction) and Friedrich Leopold von Versen, a German aristocrat and captain in the Prussian Guards. The photo itself was taken by Robert Welch , the official Harland & Wolff photographer who captured many famous images of Titanic and her sisters. He was also a guest at the wedding and seemingly the wedding photographer. To the rear of the page is another photo of von Versen in his Prussian army uniform.
I've included a scan of the Von Versen-Carlisle wedding for your information. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. Those charges are as follows.
