Is their any recollections of who played on the court for the maiden voyage?

The strange square object in the ceiling is indeed a light and air passage. The reason it is not seen on C Deck is because it is covered with two mushroom vents on the well deck.
Cheers,
Clifton

I was just looking at a promotional advert for titanic in a book, clearly for 1st class passengers, they are the only ones whose dinning room is full and it clearly shows the valet and maid dinning room. Anyway, the squash courts have a fancy balcony type thing looking into them (I could imagine Lincoln being shot in it). Was there a balcony like that, or was it artistic license (having played squash I assume it was, but who knows with the Edwardians)? Was it more like the picture above? Asuming it was a window as above, was it a big window, were there chairs to sit on etc or just a functional corridor? Is the above drawing a good impression of the titanics squash court or is it just one of the day. Was it a small window (looking at the plans there were stairs in the way on F deck for it to be a full window).

Lots of questions there.

Richard,

Yes, there was a viewing balcony, on F Deck immediately aft of the squash court. To get access to the court on G Deck you had to go through this viewing area and then down some stairs to G Deck.

Hope this helps.

Oh, and that mysterious "skylight/ventilation" thing you guys are talking about, here is the answer. In the middle of the room was glass. If you were to break the glass and fly up, you would go through a ventilation duct (I am guessing that's what you call it), and be greeted by a ventilation hatch. If you were to break that ventilation hatch, you would be on the well deck. Here, have a picture.

P.S. Click it to make it bigger if needed.

P.P.S. The ventilation hatch is where those 2 white blocks are in the middle of the well deck. In between those 2 blocks, if you look closely, is the hatch.

Moderator's hat on:

All this F Deck and G Deck talk is messing with my brain :confused:
TitanicNerd, messages like this serve no purpose other than to disrupt any meaningful discussion and, as you know, several have already led to threads being closed.

Stop.
I have a question myself. Is the court and viewing area on G Deck?
See message number 27 and do not ask questions that have already been answered.

Derek, the viewing balcony is located near the mail room. The mail room is located on G Deck. With that info, I think the viewing balcony was located on G Deck.

Makes sense. I was looking at, I guess, incorrect blueprints. I just looked at the Encyclopedia Titanica version and it showed me :)
