    How did the dinner or lunch look like? Were the people strolling through the saloon as in the Cameron's movie or were they just sitting and quietly eating?
    And what thew were wearing at breakfast and lunch? Were the women wearing hats in the dinning saloon?

    The Fr. Browne photo of Titanic's dining saloon from breakfast on April 11, 1912 might give you an idea of what it was like. Most of the people seen standing in the photo were most probably dining room stewards. In the distance in the room, there's a lady who I think is looking at a menu, and it looks like she's wearing a hat. The meals were served between given times. Unlike lunch or dinner, a greater period of time was allowed for breakfast. I guess passengers walked in to sit at their table & have their meal. People didnít really stroll about the room just for fun. I donít think it would have been much different to a hotel mealtime today.

    Daniel.
