#41825, "RE: Britannic Interior"
In response to In response to 6


          

Daniel,
Please, could you post any artists impresssions that aren't already on the site of Britannic?
H&W should have accounting records of where those interiors were, as part of Britannics "furnishings, fixtures and equipment". Things like Electrical fixtures were sorta 'build to suit' back then so i'm sure much of her intended lighting fixtures, were installed. as well as elevators, fans, vents, pumps.
So that leaves us left with just "finery" like wall panels, ballisters, furniture, (carpentry items). Things like lamps, rugs, not to mention dishes, and cutlery, could be used on other ships.

Why are these records so hard to find? H&W, White Star, I.M.M. and their insurers should have detailed records of what "went down with the ship" Also, what upgrades from BRIT. could have been fitted on OLYM. after the war? Would they have saved the wrought iron from the staircase or was the design different? Did it get scrapped for war the effort?

Even though this was a KINGDOM, and still not as free, there should be PUBLIC information out there.
All these things are not only on admistration and legal documents, these are big numbers we're talking about. They should be easily identified on financial records that must be kept, for decades in some cases. Tax, Payroll, Insurance, not to mention the government reimbursements, and war related legalities against the enemy.
There is much more paper out there to be researched, for a library of new Olympic Class liner books!
