    Can you please advise if you know where I could access more information regarding the first Titanic image – where did you find it? Many thanks

      It is on the main Wikipedia Titanic page with caption RMS Titanic under construction

      Date between 1909 and 1912
      Author uncredited

      But you can find it elsewhere if you do a search for the specific image.
