#55578, "RE: Fwd Staircase Dome covers 400 and 401" In response to In response to 1
Hi Bob, I don't wish to question established knowledge, but my spontaneous impression when looking at that "porthole" in the Titanic photo is that it is sitting at the end of a 1-2 foot long white cylindrical tube that is protruding from the white wall. The photo is not clear, and my eyes could deceive me, but I would have guessed that the black dot is the end of a ventilation tube. If it is indeed a porthole, what use would a single porthole have in that position?
This is just my spontaneous impression from looking at that photo tonight, nothing I have researched myself.
