A road map to Titanic’s first class areas
Description  

Printed promotional plan of the Titanic’s first class accommodations, measuring 5.25 x 10 folded and opening to an impressive 40 x 29. Outside panel is labeled “'White Star Line. Southampton-Cherbourg- New York Service (Via Queenstown Westbound, and Via Plymouth Eastbound) R.M.S. 'Titanic.' (Combination of Turbine and Reciprocating Engines). Triple Screw - 45, 000 Length, 882.6 Breadth, 92.6 One Of The Two Largest Steamers In The World. Plan of First Class Accommodation." Inside, embellished with the famous White Star flag, shows the detailed ground plans of every First Class cabin over several decks; plus First Class Smoking Room, Lounge, Gymnasium, Restaurant, and Staircases, with 7 margin vignettes showing photographs of the rooms and a painting of the ship at sea; and with details of the facilities offered: “Restaurant. - In addition to the regular Dining Saloon there is a large modern a la carte Restaurant, on Deck B, where meals mat be obtained at any time between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. at fixed charges… The Restaurant is under the management of the Company, who have appointed Mr. L.

Turkish, Electric and Swimming Baths. - A fully-equipped Turkish Bath is situated on Deck F, consisting of the usual steam, hot temperate, shampooing, and cooling rooms… A Gymnasium, fully supplied with modern appliances, is situated on the Boat Deck, and is open for exercise by Ladies and Gentlemen during the same hours as the Baths… A Squash Racquet Court is provided on Deck F, and is in charge of a professional player. A Verandah Cafe and Palm Court situated on Deck A, where light refreshments are served.” Some small separations along fragile intersecting folds and a uniform shade of mild toning, otherwise fine condition.

These plans were distributed to First Class passengers who purchased a ticket to sail on Titanic. They often made their way onboard with the passengers to aid them in finding their way around the ship. Passengers were initially told that they were being placed into the lifeboats as a precaution and that they would likely return to the ship. Because of this, some passengers left their valuables on board but took items with them which would be necessary or helpful in the event they returned to the ship. Accordingly, this plan may have belonged to a surviving passenger who removed it from the ship during the evacuation with the expectation of returning when the all-clear was sounded.
