2nd Class Dining Room
Second class dining room.
Titanic’s second class dining room, located on ‘D’ deck, could accommodate all 564 second class passengers at a single seating. It was a large elegant room, with mahogany furniture upholstered in crimson. A piano provided entertainment for the diners.
The long tables and mahogany swivel chairs were bolted to the floors in case of bad weather at sea.
The dinner menu on the evening of 14 April, 1912, the night of the collision, shows that the second class passengers enjoyed a hearty three-course meal, with a consommé to start, then a choice of four main courses: baked haddock, chicken curry, spring lamb and roast turkey, followed by dessert and coffee.
For many of those on board, this would be their last meal.
"The panelling of this room is carried out in oak … at the forward end a specially-designed sideboard, with a piano in the centre, is provided; the furniture is in mahogany, the upholstery of crimson leather and the floor has linoleum tiles of special design".
