  RMS Titanics reading room

 

Forward on the Promenade Deck was the first class reading and writing room decorated in late Georgian style, The room had soft white panelling, and there were beautiful designs on the ceiling, elegant furniture, the sun's rays flooded the room through the bay window on the port side and a fireplace aft anchored the beautiful proportions of the room, the location of the reading room was just behind the 1st class lounge on the promenade A deck.

As a counterpoint to the men’s smoking room, this stylish space was primarily intended for the ladies. After dinner the women could gravitate to this cozy space for coffee or conversation.

The Reading room was probably destroyed in the final stages of the sinking as it was located in the area where titanic broke apart.
