"...I find it curious... theres no archway to walk across to the other side of the room from boatdeck level..."

The athwartship passage had to be eliminated to permit the two-storey space required for the organ chamber. The instrument was to be completely enchambered and without exposed pipework, false or otherwise; the grillework you see at the Boat Deck level allowed for the egress of sound from the pipework. The winding system and the windchests upon which the pipes of the upper registers were to stand would have taken up most of the lower half of the chamber, while the pipework of these divisions would occupied the upper portion. The longer pipes of the pedal division and also the bass registers of the manual divisions would have been located on offset chests apart from the main windchests; these would have been located on the A-Deck level, with the longest pipes rising through the entire two-deck height of the chamber. The arched panel you see beneath the clock was to be a lockable door which concealed the organ's console from curious hands when the instrument was not being played by an organist or by a trained attendant operating the roll player.
