    Architectural styles of 1st and 2nd class spaces

    Recently, I've become interested in the use of different "styles" to convey different atmospheres within the upper-class spaces of the RMS Titanic. However, it's difficult finding reliable sources on which style each room conveyed. and even more so information on the styles themselves. Are...

    RMS Olympic silver platter

    I recently won this at auction from the Olympic and thought you would all enjoy seeing it. My mom, who is pretty good at antiques, told me that it used to be for ice to hold and you put oysters or shrimp on top. I just love the clawed feet

    Cordoning off first class in E deck

    With regards to condoning off the E deck grand staircase landing, elevators and the first class four berth cabins, I can see the dashes on the deck plans to show where this would occur. But how exactly would these areas be cordoned off to separate second class? Would this have been by use of...

    What Did Titanic's Grand Staircase Actually look like?

    A Woman of Temperament by Lucy Duff Gordon

    So...I remember on the other forum there was a discussion about how hard it was to get hold of Lucile's (Lady Duff Gordon's) memoirs and how expensive they are if you do. No more! As of the beginning of April you'll be able to buy them in print or as an e-book (links will go up soon) at a...
