I drew several drawings on the cabins on the Boat Deck some time ago with the help of Daniel K.
I still have them and will scan them if you would like a look.

Hi Greg.
Wow, you are a fantasic artist!

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?

thanks

Im very interested in the Boat deck skid lights, which reflected light down to some of the A deck cabins.

Greg, could you sketch what the 'skid light-light reflection box' might look like, which I believe was positioned under the beds of the boat deck cabins?

Also, how large do you suppose was the skylights of the A deck cabins were that recieved the light via the skid lights, and which A deck cabins recieved the light?

regards

Tarn,

there is a photo of Father Brown's cabin, A37 - its cracked and out of focus, but gives a good impression of the cabin I am sure A36 would be identical in decor.

Here is a rendering I made of a one berth A Deck cabin, A36 and A37 would have been similar to this.

That makes me wonder about the cabin windows....
A-36 and A-37 were last minute additions to the area of the upper landing of the aft grand staircase

...all the windows in that area were arched....
Did A-36 and A-37 have the original arched windows,or was a new window shape cut?

The 2 photos that exist of father Brown' cabin are remarkable- his cabin was at the epicenter of the breakup, and everthing in the frame was certianly shattered and twisted...

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.

Hi David.
Those small round porthole like openings foot level on the boat deck (which are oval shaped on Olympic) reflected light down to the A deck cabins..

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.

By the way, nice illustrations, Greg and Brain.

Regards,

Nigel

Good points Nigel.

There are a couple of published photos taken inside Titanic's A deck promenade.
In any of the promenade photos, can we catch a glimpse off to the side of the window(s) of staterooms A-36 or A-37?

thanks
