RMS Olympic BL24990_021

RMS OLYMPIC, White Star Line. View of the boat deck, looking aft, showing lifeboats and funnels. The Olympic was the first of a class of luxurious express transatlantic ocean liners, and entered service with the White Star Line in 1911 as the largest cruise liner in the world. Sister ship of the RMS Titanic, she was the only one of the class to prove a success, serving until 1935. After the Titanic sank in 1912, her stokers went on strike until sufficient lifeboats were provided for all passengers and crew. The ship was then refitted and additional safety measures installed. In 1914 the Olympic was requisitioned as a troopship, served in the Gallipoli campaign in 1915, and brought US troops to Europe in 1917. She returned to civilian service in 1920. Photographed by Bedford Lemere, Southampton, October 1921

Mr Selfridges Room, Lansdowne House BL25525 Featured Bedford Lemere Collection (1860s-1944) Image

Mr Selfridges Room, Lansdowne House BL25525

LANSDOWNE HOUSE, Berkeley Square, London. An interior view of Mr Selfridge's Room. Photographed by Bedford Lemere and Company, 1921. At the time of this photograph, Lansdowne House was leased to the American retail entrepreneur Gordon Selfridge, of Selfridge's department store fame. Lansdowne House was the family home of the Marquesses of Lansdowne, but like many London homes of the aristocracy, it proved difficult for the owners to maintain in the harsh British economic climate after the First World War, and prior to a period of it being leased out to occupiers, it was finally sold off and became a gentlemen's and ladies club
