Hi!
Recently I have seen that some still think the Third Class (if you do, that's ok!)
Stairwell, General Room, and Smoking Room has red tiles. I will show you evidence that she had Green Tiles for each room.
Here's a picture from 1992 and 2003

Third Class staircasetheres definately something down there


Those are definitely green tiles, specifically Green and Cream tiles, with borders

(It would've been a little lighter, like a jade green color.)

Now that you've seen this, in the photograph of the Olympic's Smoking Room, the tiles/linoleum looks green

I will enjoy if we can get a discussion going

Interesting... I'm sure I can look this up, but may be quicker just to ask, has any green or red tiles of such pattern been recovered from the debris field, or seen in debris field? Thanks for sharing.

That was quick. I remembered seeing some red rules but couldn't picture the design to recall if it was the same or not. THANKS! The tiles in the last two photos kind of give off the same hue as the ones pictured in the third class stairway. Not saying either way, I have not studied anything tile related.

Yeah it was quick, huh? lol, I have these saved in folders. I have a folder for each the Bow wreck, stern, and debris field.

Anyway, I can get you a brightened and closer image of the 1992 image, need a couple minutes

Excellent details! The tiles themselves don't seem to deteriorate at all.

Odd how these tiles can separate from a chunk of ship literally falling through the water, and even retain all of their sides, borders, etc.
