I was reading in the this book about the Grand staircase and it mentions that the steps and landings were covered in beige carpet. Is this true? or were they covered with linoleum. page 101.
Can anyone help me with this question.
Regards
Frank

Carpets on the Grand Staircase would have made no sense at all. I know some of the landings had rugs at the base of the Staircase. The steps were wood with a regular floor covering. The tiles were rubber/linoleum with a black and white "star" pattern.

First I heard of it. It wouldn't be the first time that some sort of misinformation had been published about the Titanic's appointments either. The legend of the 1st Class Dining Saloon being carpeted being one of them. Still, if somebody has a primary source to support this, I wouldn't mind seeing it.
