EDITORS COMMENTS This photograph captures the elegance and grandeur of the "Empire" bedroom suite in cabin C55 aboard the RMS Olympic, a sister ship to both the Titanic and Britannic. Taken by Bedford Lemere and Company, commissioned by the White Star Line (also known as the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company), this image is believed to have been captured at Southampton docks. The luxurious bedroom suite exudes opulence with its ornate furnishings, intricate woodwork, and plush textiles. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of this room - from the delicately patterned wallpaper to the exquisite chandelier hanging from above. It's easy to imagine oneself stepping back in time into this lavish space. As one gazes upon this photo print, it evokes a sense of nostalgia for an era when ocean liners were not merely modes of transportation but floating palaces that offered unparalleled comfort and luxury. This image serves as a reminder of how travel has evolved over time while also paying homage to these magnificent vessels that once ruled the seas. Preserved within Historic England Archive, this photograph allows us to glimpse into a world long gone but forever etched in our collective memory. It stands as a testament to human ingenuity and craftsmanship while serving as a poignant reminder of both triumphs and tragedies associated with maritime history.
