The largest, most luxurious ship in the world, wrecked on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg in mid-Atlantic has become the stuff of legends, her name, Titanic! While everyone knows the new White Star liner was the most glamorous and was full of millionaires when she sank, few appreciate just how luxurious she was. Even in Third Class, the accommodation was better than on First Class on many older ships. For the first time, Bruce Beveridge, Steve Hall and Scott Andrews look at the ship itself, and at her interior design and fittings. From cobalt blue Spode china and Elkington plate silverware in the a la carte restaurant to the design of the boilers and fixtures and fittings onboard the world's most luxurious vessel, they tell the story of a liner built at the peak of the race between the British, French and Germans to build bigger and better ships.
About the Author
Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall have co-written Olympic and Titanic: The Truth Behind the Conspiracy, which won Titanic Book of the Year in 2004. They both live in the USA. Scott Andrews lives in Australia.
