|OLD China found on the Olympic today - Additional Identification Resources?|
Posted by Elaine on January 28, 2007 at 18:28:08:|
Today, Ross O. and I made our first dive stop at the Wreck of the Olympic. Our plan, if vis was good, was to make a large sightseeing circle over and around the entire wreck. Visibility was a terrific 40+ feet, so our plan was a go. About half way into our circle I noticed Ross creating a large dirt pile in the water column - he was digging. Next, he was waving a dinner plate in his hand. I didn't think too much of it. Everybody knows that there is nothing left to be found on the Olympic. I figured the plate had been tossed overboard from a fishing boat or something.
Back on the Orion, Ross cleaned up his find. I was teasing him about being the only person I knew who could turn a dive day into housework. (Gee Ross, maybe you can find some more things in the ocean to "wash").
This is the plate that Ross found.
This is the manufacturers mark on the plate
Calls to Steve Lawson and Patrick Smith turned up no immediate information about the galleyware used on the Olympic. Back at home, I did a google search on Warwick China and this is an interesting link that I found.
The age of this plate might indicate that it was in the galley on the Olympic. Does anyone have more information of China from the Olympic?
