Hello, smart folks! New member here, thanks so much for your expertise.

I've been comparing two Orlop deck plans, both beautifully detailed - but came across one discrepancy between them. Which is correct?

The Shipbuilder deck plan shows a "Dried Fruit & Vegs" room that's far larger than the Champagne room:

The deck plan by Bruce Beveridge swaps the location of the Champagne & Dried Fruit rooms:
Titanic Deckplans : Orlop Deck

Many thanks for any guidance here!

Hello!
The June 1911 Deckplans for Olympic (they weren't really for Titanic, more of a proof of concept type thing) represent Olympic in her maiden voyage state, I think. Changes were carried out soo after, i.e the "Cloak Room" being removed because Thomas Andrews decided it was a waste of earning space, and it was converted into cabins on Titanic and on Olympic.
