    So shocking. Would have been scrapped a long time ago had it not sank.

    Or may have been retired like the Queen Mary in Long Beach.

    Maybe, but the Olympic as the only surviving ship of the class was just unceremoniously scrapped in 1937. During and immediately after the Great Depression there was no use anymore for the pre-war ocean liners and no willingness yet to preserve any of them. That became a thing only in the 1970s or so when there were hardly any left.
