This image combines human interest with a contrast of technologies: photographed as the "Titanic”, the world's most sophisticated ship slows to permit the pilot to transfer to the sail powered pilot boat. The round object on the horizon is one of the Portsmouth defensive forts. Ironically this like so many of the pictures features the lifeboats that were to prove so inadequate.
