EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the scene of the 3rd class dining saloon aboard the RMS Olympic, taken during her maiden voyages between 1920 and 1921. The Olympic, a White Star Line vessel and sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic and Britannic, is depicted here with its tables set for a meal, ready to serve the third-class passengers. The Oceanic Steam Navigation Company, commonly known as the White Star Line, commissioned Bedford Lemere and Company to document the ship's interiors, resulting in this stunning image. The photograph was likely taken at the Southampton docks, where the Olympic began her transatlantic crossings. The 3rd class dining saloon, while more modest than those found in the first and second classes, was still designed to provide a comfortable and enjoyable dining experience for passengers. The wooden tables, adorned with crisp white tablecloths and gleaming silverware, are set for a meal, with plates and cutlery arranged neatly. The room is bathed in natural light, filtering in through the large windows, and the atmosphere is one of anticipation and camaraderie. The RMS Olympic, launched in 1911, represented the pinnacle of ocean liner design and luxury. Despite being overshadowed by the tragic sinking of her sister ship, the Titanic, the Olympic continued to ply the Atlantic, providing a vital link between Europe and North America for thousands of passengers. This photograph offers a glimpse into the daily life of 3rd class passengers aboard this magnificent vessel, providing a fascinating window into maritime history.
