The First class Restaurant would have been located in the same spot as on Olympic and Titanic, but it was expanded to the full width of the ship (thus removing the Cafe Parisian) The Reception room was located in the same spot as on Olympic, but also occupied the remaining space that would have housed the forward end of the Cafe.

Yeah, but Titanic had Recpetion Room for the A La' Carte Restaruant too. It was decorated in white panelling with red flowerey carpet and dark brown wicker tables and chairs. It had 3 windows looking into the restauraunt and 3 portholes with cream curtians. I have a picture of it in my Titanic book. I'd scan it onto this post, but my scanner is broken and it would be copyright.

Brian, I think that is a photo from the Olympic. Titanic's Reception room on B deck was located at the base of the aft staircase, and not in the same location as on Olympic.

Quite right. It would be. Better safe then sued. As to the photo you mentioned, perhaps you can tell us what book it is and what page it's on. Some of the members here have some impressive book collections, so I'm sure somebody would recognize it. I think you'll find Steve is right about the provanance of the photo. Quite a few of the passenger accomadations and public rooms on the Britannic were never finished, and were seldom photographed even if they were.

Brian if you refer to the deck plans on this web-site you will see that on Titanic the B-deck Reception Room and the Restaurant were some distance apart.

1913 deck plans of the Olympic suggest to me that the windows you refer to are between the Reception Room and the Cafe Parisian.

Hi All,

I have done a colored pencil drawing of the Britannic Reception Room, I don't recall if I have shown it before, but here it is again, I appologize for the poor quality but I had to reduce it:
