Window near 3rd funnel

Hi, I hope this is the best pace to post this. I'm interested in any information confirming or denying the existence of a forward-facing window that may or may not have existed in a storage room(?) just port of the 3rd funnel. I have indicated this location with a red circle, opposite from where a similar windows exists on the starboard side of the ship in the officers' mess:

I assume, as indicated on the plan, that this was basically a storage room for deck chairs. If the windows exists, it was probably a pattern "H" teak frame window like others in the area. I can't find any direct reference to this room in either volume of TTSM. There is a photo pg. 213 of vol. 2 (Fig. 5-38) that *may* show a window, but I can't tell for sure.

This window IS shown in:
  • Bob Read's Titanic CAD plans (at least it looks like it in the view aft from frame 10A)
  • Part G18 on the Minicraft model
  • Instructions for Toms Modelworks PE window set
  • Bruce Kern's cross-reference chart for the Toms PE set
It's obviously not shown in Bruce Beveridge et al's drawings or in the TTSM books.

Does anyone have any evidence that would shed light on this question? A clear photograph of the area on either Titanic or Olympic would be best. Or some period design or construction drawing or other reference. I would assume this area was probably identical on Olympic, but I have no proof either way there either. I think this part of the deckhouse is long gone on the wreck.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

A picture of the Titanic as taken by the Odell family on the 10th of April 1912, showing a pattern ‘H’ window, being 24 inches wide and 3 feet and 6 inches high. I hope that this confirms that there was indeed a window with 100% certainty.

Kind regards,


Thomas

which direction are we facing?
The picture is taken on the port side of the first class boat deck looking aft towards the stern, the picture is taken just aft of the boat deck landing of the forward Louis XIV staircase.
I cannot see a window in this photo

Here it is, it is behind the 35" warm air Sirocco fan and the 30” hot air sirocco fan. Only about 40% of the window can be seen.
