Does anyone heard about a woman who fell on the Grand Staircase in the Afternoon of the 14 of April 1912............ I think she was Ms. Irene Harris........ the wife of Mr. Henry Harris, which she broke her arm....... Is that true???
You know, this is probably as good a place as any to speculate on what tricky footing that beautiful Grand Staircase must have been in any kind of a sea. The staircase's treads were linoleum. Lino is not slippery unless it's waxed, and the self-polishing waxes for lino (like Johnson's Glo-Coat) hadn't been invented yet, so that part was okay. But negotiating that staircase when the ship was rolling to any extent must have been, um, interesting.
