Olympic enters New York on her maiden voyage in June 1911, both a huge version of the original photo and a colorized version of it.

Note the line of scraped-off paint on the hull under the 1st funnel. As Olympic was turning into the dock, it actually scraped along the pier. If you look closely in the photo, you can see the hull appears to still be in contact with the corner of the pier, with a group of people standing at the corner inspecting the damage, a couple of them standing a mere foot or two from the hull.
