Olympic Deckchair

19-Deckchair-Titanic-78.jpgIt was on deckchairs like this that Titanic’s passengers would have relaxed while stewards served them refreshments. This deckchair came from Olympic. Deckchairs were regularly shown in a range of photographs depicting life on board Titanic. They were such an iconic part of the ship that they inspired a modern expression known as ‘moving deckchairs on the Titanic’ which describes doing something pointless that will soon be overtaken by greater events.
