Lot 243
R.M.S. TITANIC: Extremely rare photo of an oddly-shaped 'blueberg' photographed by the Captain of the S.S. Etonian. The image shows a massive iceberg with a very odd elliptical shape, and is captioned in black ink. "Iceberg taken by Captain Wood SS Etonian in 41°50N 49°50W April 12th at 4pm 1913 (sic) Titanic struck April 14th and sank in 3 hours". The significance of this photo is heightened by an original handwritten letter by Captain Wood written on board SS Etonian to the vendor's great grandfather Billy Tucker who as a young man wrote to Wood regarding the matter of photography. Wood states "I am sending you a sea picture the Etonian running before a gale and the iceberg that sank the Titanic. We crossed the ice tracks 40hrs before her and in daylight so saw the ice easily and I got a picture". The second image Wood refers to of the Etonian in a gale is included in the lot.
Unfortunately, there is no surviving photograph of the iceberg taken from Titanic's deck that night. Several photographs of the icebergs in Titanic's vicinity taken before and after the collision have been offered throughout the years as candidates for the iceberg which sunk the ship.
Fredrick Fleet, the lookout on duty who first spotted the iceberg, and Joseph Scarrott, an able-bodied seaman, each drew sketches of the iceberg which appear similar to the iceberg in this photo. Their drawings are reproduced on pages 140-141 of Titanic: "Triumph and Tragedy", Second Edition, by John P. Eaton and Charles A. Haas (W.W. Norton & Company, 1955). A "Blueberg" as indicated in the caption simply refers to the tinting of the iceberg from the sun's rays, much like the "blue" ocean. It bears a resemblance to images drawn by Titanic's lookout and crewman. 5ins. x 4ins.
