British survivor of RMS Titantic, the youngest person on board.

Millvina Dean's parents had decided to leave England and emigrate to Wichita, Kansas where her father’s family members were  living and where he hoped to open a tobacco shop.The Deans were not supposed to be aboard the Titanic, but owing to a coal strike, they were transferred to the ship and boarded it as third-class passengers at Southampton.

Millvina was barely two months old when she boarded the ship. Her father felt the ship's collision with the iceberg on the night of 14 April 1912, and after investigating, returned to his cabin telling his wife to dress the children and go up on deck. Millvina, her mother, and brother were placed in Lifeboat 10 and were among the first steerage passengers to escape the sinking liner. Her father, however, did not survive, and his body, if recovered, was never identified.

This is a very fine modern black and white reproduction (8" x 10") of RMS Titanic. neatly signed to a clear area of the image in black ink. In excellent condition. (The photograph comes with a small candid photograph of Millvina Dean at the signing.)
