What did the Adam Style Parlour Suite on Deck look like? I just thought of it and i'm really curious about that room and the bedrooms!

Luckily there's one picture of the "Adam Suite" as you called it, which was B51 (occupied by Charlotte Cardeza and her son). You can find the actual Titanic photo in various books. Its (and this is from memory) on pg. 57 of the Lynch/Marschall book, a small picture showing the fireplace. A much nicer and larger view can be found in Dave Bryceson, British newspapers book (sorry I can't recall the name), I think it's on pg. 16 there.

There's several pictures or illustrations of Olympic's Adams sitting room, although it didn't look exactly like Titanic's, it gives you a really good impression of what that style on Titanic would have looked like.

There are no surviving pictures of B53 or B55, but if one knows Olympic and Britannic well enough, you can figure out exactly what B53/55 looked like on Titanic.

Hi All!

It is interesting to note that Ms. Cardeza sued White Star for the loss of her luggage that consisted of 14 trunks 4 suitcases 3 crates 1 medicine chest; containing among others -

70 dresses
10 fur coats
38 feather boas
22 jeweled hatpins
91 pairs of gloves
1 Swiss made music box

All valued at $177,352 in 1912!

Best Regards,

Brian

I know - this is an older post - but I'd start here.

With all of that luggage, would that be stored in the wardrobe rooms? I'm not sure how large they were, but I figured all of that wouldn't be stored away anywhere else.

Hi Kevin,

The wardrobe chests would be unpacked and all the clothes would be placed into the dressers and or hung on the racks provided in the wardrobe rooms of the large suites which were similar to walk in closets while the smaller suites had average sized closets and or freestanding wardrobes.

Best Regards,

Brian

Interesting! I had always wondered about how they did that. I wasn't sure. Thanks for clearing that up for me!

Understandable. I guess I started this post many many years ago and now I know what I've wanted to know! :)
