Hello,


The painting above the fireplace was named “Plymouth Harbour” and was painted by Norman Wilkinson (who also painted the painting in the Olympic her first class smoking room Plymouth Harbour and invented the dazzle paint which was used in the First World War).

The painting was 68 inches wide and 31 inches high and was behind glass. That is 180 centimeters (1.8 meters) and 80 centimeters (0.8 meters) in height.

Allow me to explain the stained glass window arrangement.

The first stained glass window contains the muse of Tragedy, located beside the door of the smoking room lavatory on the starboard side. Sadly it is the most undocumented of the stained glass windows. The last picture above comes from a plan dated from 1910, which had paneling in the smoking room which was more comparable to the RMS Adriatic (1907).

The second stained glass window, which was located on the left side of the muse of Tragedy, was the first sailing sailing vessel.

The third stained glass window, and the second one that has a muse on it, was the stained glass window with the muse of Poetry on it. It was located on the left of the stained glass window with the sailing vessel on it.

Now we have discussed all the windows on the starboard side of the casing of the U shaped corridor that surrounded the turbine engine casing. Now we move forward to the three windows that are the opposite of the fireplace.

The fourth stained glass window, and the third one that has a muse on it. This was the stained glass window with the muse of Dancing depicted on it.

The fifth stained glass window, and the second one with a sailing vessel on it, was on the left of the muse of Dancing.

The sixth stained glass window, and the fourth one with a muse on it, was the stained glass window with the muse of Music depicted on it.

Now we move to the port side of the casing of the U shaped corridor that surrounded the turbine engine casing.

The seventh stained glass window, and the fifth one with a muse depicted on it, was the stained glass window with the muse of Sculpture depicted on it.

The eight stained glass window was the third, and last, that depicted a sailing vessel on it..

The ninth stained glass window, and the sixth one with a muse on it, was the stained glass window with the muse of Painting depicted on it.

Now we make our way to the two final stained glass windows which flanked the mantle of the fireplace.

The tenth stained glass window was on the left side of the 8 feet wide and 4 feet and 9 inches high fireplace mantle and had the muse of Geometry on it.

The eleventh, and final stained glass window, was located on the right side of the mantle of the fireplace. It had the muse of Astronomy depicted on it.

Here is another brief overview of the muses on the stained glass windows (this plan was made by João Gonçalves)


I hope this may helps.



Yours sincerely,


Thomas
