She was also the last survivor!
Signed photograph of the Titanic
(1912-2009) Born in Branscombe, England, she was a British civil servant and a cartographer. Millvina's claim to fame was that she was the youngest survivor of the sinking of the Titanic, on April 15, 1912, and she lived to be the last remaining survivor! Millvina, her father, Bertram Frank Dean, her mother, Georgette Eva Dean, and her older brother, Bertram Vere Dean, were third class steerage passengers on the maiden voyage of the now infamous ocean liner, R.M.S. Titanic. Boarding at Southampton, England, the Dean's had decided to leave England and emigrate to the United States where Millvina's father was going to become co-owner of a tobacco shop with his cousin in Wichita, Kansas. Ironically, the Dean family were not originally scheduled to travel across the Atlantic Ocean on the Titanic. A coal strike caused them to be transferred to the doomed ocean liner. Millvina, her mother, and brother were placed in Lifeboat 13, and survived the disaster. Her father however, did not survive. If his body was recovered, it was never identified.
Signed Photograph: 18 x 12, excellent black and white photograph of R.M.S. Titanic leaving port. Bordered in blue, it has the iconic White Star logo at lower left, and the name TITANIC blazoned in large white letters across the bottom. Boldly hand signed in black ink at the top of the photograph, Millvina Dean. Great photo for framing or display.
