2nd Class Smoke Room

Second class smoking room.

Second class smoking room.

At this time there was not only a strict segregation between the social classes, but on occasion, between the sexes too.  These social conventions continued on board Titanic, when, after dinner, the gentlemen of the second class would retreat to the male-only Smoking Room.  Here they might spend some time enjoying a drink and engaging in a friendly hand of cards.

Located on B-deck above the second class library, the Smoking Room was panelled in carved oak.  Its oak furniture, upholstered in dark green Moroccan leather, added to its masculine air. The floor was laid with linoleum tiles, the very latest in 1912 floor covering.

"The decoration is a variation of Louis XVI period; the panelling and dado are of oak relieved with carving; the furniture is of oak of special design, covered with plain, dark green morocco".
