These brass letters spell "C dec" and were originally located in the first class grand staircase to direct passengers to the C level. The "k" was never recovered. This artifact has never been on public display.
All first class accommodation had access from one deck to another either by the two grand staircases or three elevators. The grand staircases were decorated with a blend of late 17th century English style and Louis XIV; oak paneling covered the walls. #FirstClassFriday #Titanic
These massive steel posts were used to tie Titanic to the pier using four-inch-thick manila ropes. Originally, these bollards were located at the stern on the Third Class Poop Deck, but as Titanic sank, they broke off and were later recovered from the seabed. Holes at the top of each post assisted in ventilating work spaces and the third-class public rooms on the deck below.
