Hi Eric,

The question of coaling came to mind when I was looking at that canvas screen. But were such screens actually used when taking on coal? Any photos I've seen of large liners coaling seem to show no extra canvas, at least on the promenade decks.

I wonder if the horror stories of coal dust everywhere were more common with warships and smaller vessels that used deck scuttles for loading coal. The side ports used on the big liners would, I imagine, reduce the dust problem on the ship's upper decks.

Jason, did Campania and Lucania have coaling ports in the shell side, or did they use deck scuttles?

Regards,
Ralph
