Can anyone enlighten me as to these "confession booth" looking additions flanking the central seating booths in the 2nd class smoke room? On the deck plans, they appear to be doors leading into a tiny recess, but I can't find more information on it.
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.
So I don't know if they've got an account on here or not, but the Gentlemen who are currently working on Titanic: Honor and Glory have actually created quite a few tear jerking shorts (Some of which I know for a fact are spread around here).
One of their Shorts, titled Belfast Air , has got me...
Reproductions of ashtrays from the Titanic are absent from the artifacts reproductions sales. Does this mean no one smoked on the Titanic (LOL), or is political correctness now manipulating history for our own good.
Sorry if this question has been answered before but can anyone tell me: "What was shown on the painted windows of the smoking-room?"
EDIT: And douse anyone maby know if the fireplace was in marmer.
