Mr Logvnenko chose green and gold decoration to illustrate the opulence of the suites

I'm not really a fan of colorizing photographs, personally. Let b&w photography stand on its own, I say, but it's become really popular these days to Photoshop those old pictures.

That's Olympic. The A-Deck (the one below the boat deck) runs completely from bow to stern in open air. Titanic's A-Deck is interrupted by windows as opposed to an open promenade.

Thank you SO much for finding that and sharing it, OA260 - I've always been fascinated by the Titanic
|Quoting NAV20 (Reply 9):|
The book served an important purpose, in that, up to that time, many historians had blamed the heavy loss of life (only about 700 survivors out of about 2,200 on board) on 'class prejudice,' third class passengers being locked up below decks, etc. while first and second classes were allowed on to the boat-deck. Based on interviews with Lightoller and other survivors, Lord was able to show that the heavy loss of life had a lot more to do with the fact that the ship only had boats for 1,200 people. The ship also developed a heavy list, so that not all the lifeboats could be lowered; and, in addition, the Titanic had been widely advertised as 'unsinkable.' A lot of people were reluctant to commit themselves to being lowered fifty feet to the waters of the Atlantic, in open boats, so that a lot of the boats were lowered only half-full.
It's also fair to say that the old principle - 'Women and Children First' - was very largely followed; meaning that very few men survived.

Some lovely photos of the Titanic and the interiors. The Titanic's Cafe Parisien is one of my favourites!

In reality, that particular photo cannot be confirmed as OLYMPIC or TITANIC.
