We are delighted after a lot of research to confirm who the remaining signature is on the multi signed Titanic photograph. George Thomas born Master Georges Youssef Touma he embarked in Cherbourg aged 8 on 10th April 1912 with Maria his sister and his mother their final destination was to be Dowagiac Michigan United States. His family travelled as 3rd class passengers and were rescued in Collapsible C
he died December 1991 aged 87. It has taken us a few years to put together the pieces to ascertain whose signature this was (George Thomas) as the other George Thomas’s who sadly passed on before this photo was signed in 1982 (by all other signees except Milvina Dean who signed in 2008) We kept coming up with Master Georges Youssef Touma but one of our American associates then told us that Master Georges Youssef Touma was known and signed as George Thomas. Dave Davies the boss of titanicautographs.com said “this has been a real mission I was not sure if someone associated with the other George Thomas’s maybe a member of their family had signed but now I am delighted we have matched up other examples of George Thomas’s signature with this one”. “It was the original name that threw me!
This item now has even more value to it however for the time being we will keep it at the same selling price”.
