Here we see A-Deck Promenade the forward section with its enclosed windows, her sister ship Olympic did not have this half closed promenade and is one major way of telling them apart. Also we have the boat deck area, this area was only for officers and you can see that the windows of the officer quarters are open yet they would have been closed the night of the sinking due to the coldness of the night. What we believe happened is that once she sank and hit the ocean floor a down blast of water, which she created coming down came from above and hit the ship with enough force to blow open the windows and compress the ship!

Here we have a rare view of the original tiles still in place now over 102 years! They are from the Turkish baths. This room is located on F-deck which is 6 decks down from the boat deck. The Turkish baths were a steam like room for first class to relax. It was also located right next to the swimming pool so after they were done here you could walk down the hall for a swim. Just below this deck are the boiler rooms. So you are quite a ways down.
