Here is rare footage of the Olympic (perhaps taken by a passenger). It looks like 2 First class stewards are carrying a box from 3rd class to 1st class. Anyone know what this could be? Also a Quartermaster appears to take a short cut and climbs down the crane to reach the deck below. Was this perfectly normal? Was he not allowed to use the passenger's staircase?

The stewards could be carrying anything from the stores to their workplace - possibly cutlery, napkins, tablecloths etc, but unlikely to be food. The QM was just taking the quick route down rather than use the ladders which would have been a roundabout route. My four 'pennorth!
