Impressive shot, it really was a big boat.
You do know this picture is labeled incorrectly. In May of 1911, the only ship in the dry dock, where this picture was taken, was the Olympic. The Titanic was still in the stocks, and the Olympic class liners were launched WITHOUT propellers. If the men pictured were behind Titanic on May 13th 1911, they would be in the water, as her stern and shafts overhung the water.
