I would also love to see you do artistic renderings of cabins C-79 and C-81. (the Big Piece cabins).
In regards to cabins A-36 and A-37, were the windows that faced the promenade the original arched foyer windows, or were they recut to the standard square design, as found on all other cabins on the A deck promenade?
Tarn: Skid Lights? are those the small port hole like openings almost at deck level? I have always meant to ask what they were for. You can clearly see them in a few boat deck pics near the Captains quarters.
I'm sure that the builders would have just re-used the same windows for those staterooms. One of these windows conected to one of the bathrooms so I'm sure some sort of privacy glass was installed behind them. Many of the A-deck outside staterooms had these.You can see one of them in the book Ghosts of the Abyss, in A11 I think on pg 107, leaning towards Edith Rosenbaum's mirror.
This is the style of what the rooms A-36-37 would have been decorated in onboard Olympic and Titanic . If you scroll down the page on Roy Mengot's site, it’s the first cabin you come across. The style is similar to the Gym's decoration with the mahogany wainscoting and white walls. Anyway check it out at:
I know its notTitanic but these are what the stateroom windows of A-37 would have looked like. You can see the double arch windows just behind the "First Class Entrance" sign. This photograph was taken some time early 1911.
