EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the luxurious 1st class smoking room aboard the RMS Olympic, a sister ship to the infamous Titanic and Britannic. Taken in 1920-21 at Southampton docks, this image captures the grandeur of an era long gone. The exquisite craftsmanship is evident in every detail of this opulent space. Fractured glass plate negative adds a touch of mystique to the scene, as if peering through time itself. The rich wooden paneling exudes elegance while plush velvet armchairs invite passengers to relax and indulge in conversation or contemplation. Commissioned by the White Star Line, also known as the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company, this photograph by Bedford Lemere and Company immortalizes a moment frozen in history. It offers us a glimpse into an age when ocean liners were marvels of engineering and epitomized luxury travel. As we gaze upon this snapshot from yesteryears, we cannot help but imagine distinguished gentlemen puffing on cigars while savoring their favorite spirits. Perhaps they engaged in lively debates or exchanged stories about their adventures across continents. This remarkable image from Historic England Archive reminds us that even amidst tragedy (as experienced by its sister ships), these majestic vessels represented human ingenuity and aspirations for exploration. It serves as a poignant reminder of our collective fascination with maritime history - where dreams set sail on vast oceans towards distant horizons.
