EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, taken in 1914, the second class saloon of the RMS Olympic is beautifully adorned for dining, offering a glimpse into the luxurious experience aboard this iconic ocean liner. The Olympic, a sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic and Britannic, was a marvel of marine engineering and design, reflecting the opulence and elegance of the White Star Line's (Oceanic Steam Navigation Company) commitment to providing first-class travel for its passengers. Commissioned by the White Star Line, this Bedford Lemere and Company photograph captures the essence of second class dining on the Olympic. The tables are elegantly set with fine china, crystal glassware, and gleaming silverware, creating an inviting atmosphere for passengers to enjoy a delicious meal amidst the gentle hum of conversation and clinking of cutlery. The richly upholstered chairs, polished wood panels, and ornate details of the saloon add to the sense of refinement and sophistication. The photograph was likely taken at the Southampton docks, where the Olympic embarked on her many voyages across the Atlantic. The White Star Line's commitment to creating a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience extended to all classes, ensuring that even second class passengers could indulge in the pleasures of fine dining aboard this magnificent vessel. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of a bygone era of ocean travel, when the journey itself was as much a part of the adventure as the destination. Today, this photograph is preserved in the Historic England Archive, offering a unique window into the past and a testament to the enduring allure of the RMS Olympic and the golden age of ocean liners.
