Homeric FirstClassDiningSaloonPlan
The White Star Line issued a complete plan of Homeric’s first class dining saloon in July 1932 (click on the image to download it in a new window). It showed the layout, table placement, and marked the large captain’s table, as well as those of other senior officers. The captain sat on seat number 18 at the largest table in the middle of the saloon, while the surgeon, chief engineer, assistant commander, and purser sat at tables around the captain’s. The passenger who saved this plan marked their own table allocation in blue crayon, showing that their party was seated at table 97 at the forward starboard corner of the saloon, near the entrance.
