1st Class Parlour Suite B60

First class parlour suite B60, Titanic, Belfast, March 1912.

The First Class suites were decorated in various period styles and came equipped with many modern electrical appliances, such as telephones, heaters, steward call bells, table fans and electrical blowers to provide fresh air.

Many of the first class cabins on Titanic had interconnecting doors so that occupants could walk directly from one room to another. This meant, for example, that the master and mistress of the household might occupy the first bedroom, with children in the second, and staff in the third.

Improvements to Titanic’s first class accommodation meant she was able to generate more income than her sister ship, Olympic.  Besides having additional staterooms, the more expensive parlour suite rooms (such as that shown here) on Bridge Deck B were extended out to the sides of the ship, to incorporate a promenade deck.
