Re: olympics history
From New Mexico, USA
facinating! I did not think there was that much to consider. Thank you very much for your in depth response. It's forums like this that make me continue to use this site.
I have another question if you don't mind. Have you in any of your research came up with an answer for why the White Star Line never enclosed half of the A deck promenade windows on Olympic as they did on Titanic? If I remember correctly, the company enclosed the windows on Titanic aprarently so that the spray would not reach the 1st class passengers, or something like that.
Do you think that they did not want to make Olympic look any more like her lost sister? Or was it because of lack of funding or interest?
I find this question interesting, since Britannic's promenade also mirrored Titanic's to an extent, including a total enclosure of the aft well deck. If this was such an improvement, and they put it on the last of the trio, why did they pass on Olympic?

The reason is that ship
has a purpose".
