#52202, "Funnel Stays"
Sat Feb-14-15 04:56 AMby deco

          

Hi everyone!

I just received my copy of Titanic in Photographs and have been enjoying the beautiful quality prints. It's a great book and many thanks to all involved in its creation.

Now, to get to the point, I've always thought the popular consensus was that Olympic had both lower and upper funnel stays (cables holding the funnels up if my terminology is wrong) while Titanic had only the lower ones.

On page 128 of this book, and again on the huge double page photo on pages 130-131, I seem to see upper funnel stays. Yeah, I had to put my readers on, but am I imagining it or are these something else?

I've attached a photo - not sure how clear it will be but in the book they seem obvious especially fore and aft of #1 funnel and aft of #2 funnel.
