Titanic Fanatic 93

Hi I'm Will, I'm nineteen years old and I've been interested in the Titanic since I saw the 1997 film Titanic, when I was four years old. I decided to make a Tumblr and post stuff about the Titanic. I hope to join the Titanic Historical Society someday.

A trailer I made for the 1958 Titanic movie “A Night to Remember.”  I’ve re-edited this trailer a couple times because I kept finding things I wanted to change about it. I think I’ve fixed everything I wanted to fix though. Enjoy!

A chair from Titanic’s First Class Dining Saloon (top), found floating near the site of the sinking and recovered during the search for bodies. Although the dining saloon was located well inside the ship on D Deck, Titanic split through the aft area of the saloon, allowing objects like the chair to float freely from the ship. While this may have been the only chair recovered, Titanic’s First Class Dining Saloon had five hundred and fifty four of these chairs. The bottom photo shows Olympic’s saloon, identical to Titanic’s, with the chairs in place.

Did you know that during the early 1930s, Titanic’s sister-ship, R.M.S. Olympic, had her “Grand Staircase” painted green?! They did it during Olympic’s 1932-33 refit (a kind of “remodeling”). It could have looked something like the above retouched photo. Most of the woodwork was painted avocado green, with various details and carvings in the woodwork being painted gold.
The decision to paint the staircase green was a product of the Art-Deco architectural style of the 1930s, where green would have been one of the “chosen colors”. Newer Deco-Liners were being built, and painting the Olympic’s first class staircases (both fore and aft ones) green was just another way to stay with the times. Many pieces of woodwork were saved from the Olympic when she was scrapped in 1935-37. Click here to see photos of some of those pieces from a 1991 auction in which those pieces were sold off. Some of the photos show coats of green and gold paint on the woodwork.
It’s strange to contemplate this being done to Titanic if she had survived into the 1930s. Imagine the fine woodwork of Titanic’s famous Grand Staircase painted in green and gold!

Renders of Titanic’s aft first class “Grand Staircase”.

Titanic had two Grand Staircases, though the aft staircase was less “grand”, extending only from A to C Deck, a smaller dome, no elevators, and a less-intricate clock. It did, however, have an elegant restaurant reception room on B Deck.
