Wednesday 10 April 1912 at noon Titanic departed from Southampton for New York on her maiden voyage. This departure however was delayed for about an hour because of a near-collision. When Titanic moved away from the dockside, the huge water displacement from her 3 propellers caused all 6 mooring ropes of SS New York to break and a collision was avoided by about only 4 ft (1.2 m). Perhaps roughly 5 hours later, around or just after 6:30pm, Titanic reached the first of two stopovers: Cherbourg in Normandie (France). As this port was not equipped to accommodate ships of this gigantic size, Titanic dropped anchor just off shore. Roughly 275 Cherbourg passengers who had been waiting for about an hour were transferred to Titanic by two White Star Line tenders (ferry boats). Subsequently some 23 passengers disembarked and the tenders transferred them, as well as mail and cargo, to the dockside. About 1.5 hours later, just past 8:00pm, not long after sunset, Titanic raised anchor and set off for Queenstown in Ireland where she would arrive the next morning around 11:30am.

Both these postcards are an actual photographic print from a negative, thus showing great detail, and these were produced either that very same "Cherbourg" day, 10 April 1912, or the following day. On the back the lines and generic texts are applied by printing press. A real photographic postcard (RPPC) in most cases is (extremely) rare, as not too many quality prints could be obtained from the negative. Furthermore, for higher print runs the printing press was the better and cheaper way for reproducing images. Only few photographs exist of Titanic en route, meaning the two stopovers: Cherbourg (France) and Queenstown (Ireland). The bulk of photographs however depict the ship at and near Belfast (2 April: sea trials) and of course at and near Southampton (3-10 April), but then again that is not really to be considered Titanic en route. Until now only two different photographic views of Titanic at Cherbourg are known to exist; occasionally these are seen in French period-newspapers, and in these two exceedingly rare real photographic postcards. This rarity of only two known photographic views is not surprising, since the stopover was in the evening and off the shore and only for 1.5 hours. (From those two photos, also a heavily touched up version was created, showing Titanic with "lights" during "night". One of these two altered photos was also issued as a regular (printed) postcard; that is the one derived from my postcard's photograph having the postage stamp affixed bottom right. Also that postcard with the touched up ship image is extremely rare, extremely difficult to come across.) ... more
