Take a look at this launch photo below.

Does anyone know what ship is under construction in the left Gantry? It's not Britannic, because her keel was laid on November 30, 1911. (And this photo is May 31, 1911).

Does any Titanic buff out there know?

No, Titanic is the one being launched into the harbor.

The ship under construction looks pretty small, maybe it is Nomadic?

Britannic's keel was laid on November 30, 1911. (And this photo was taken on May 31, 1911).

Also, the frame of that ship seems too small to be Britannic, height and width wise.

there were only a few ships being built at that time that could fit, the only one I could find was one called the Zealandic, I also found Ceramic and Traffic but the dates do not match up, how ever on the Zealandic it does match and if you look at pictures of that ship it sort of looks like the ship in the background..
