    Any on the titanic?
     
  2. I know of fireplaces in the two millionaires suites (The ones with the private promanades) and I recall something about a fireplace in the First Class Smoke Room.
     
  3. The were also fireplaces in the First class lounge and the reading/writing room on A deck. The Parlor suites on C-deck (C-62 & C-55) also had fireplaces.

    Were these actually functionable?
     
  5. There is another thread addressing this very topic.....
    I beleive all the fireplaces were feaux,including the 1st class Reading&Writing Room and Lounge Fireplaces.

    However, the Fireplace in the 1st class Smoking Room was functional...

    Can any moderators attach the old fireplace thread to this new thread?
    thanks

  6. Just to finish it off, of the 7 fireplaces on the ship only the Smoking Room fireplace was functional and burned coal. All the rest were fake.

    Did the fireplaces in the lounge, in the smoking room and in the reading and writing room works electrically?
     
  10. The one in the lounge and the reading and writing room yes.
    The fireplace in the 1st class smoking room was the only functional one burning coal.
