The swimming pool on board the Berengaria

A "Bath Club" at Sea: the modern liner's land-like buildings. Roman luxury aboard a giant liner crossing the Atlantic: a swimming bath modelled on that of Pompeii built of tiles and marble, with massive pillars and a glass roof. The swimming pool on board the Cunard ocean liner, Berengaria measuring 64 feet long by 41 feet wide, constructed of tiles and marble with mosaic work and fittings of bronze. Round the sides is a colonnade of massive pillars, supporting a glass roof which rises to the height of three decks above the bottom of the tank. Over the dressing rooms was a wide, upper gallery for spectators. A continuous cascade of fresh water entered the pool from a cascade at one end. The depth was graduated and 9 feet at its deepest. The ILN comments on the air of modern liners being akin to 'a palatial building on land' and likens the pool to a similar one on board the White Star liner Majestic. Date: 1922

View of the luxurious reading room onboard the Titanic

A view of one of the many luxurious interior features of the Titanic; the reading and writing room. First class passengers travelled in style onboard the Titanic, having free use of the gym, the Parisian caf and the swimming pool. Built by the shipyard Harland and Wolff for White Star Lines, the liner was almost identical to her sister ship, 'Olympic' and was a rival to Cunard's 'Lusitania' and 'Mauretania'. On her maiden voyage across the Atlantic, the Titanic struck an iceberg on 15th April 1912 and sank with the loss of 1503 lives"

The newly opened Dorchester Hotel

Page from The Tatler, a form of advertorial, promoting the newly opened Dorchester Hotel on London's Park Lane. Illustration features the entrance and text waxes lyrical about the captial's newest luxury hotel, describing, 'an interior luxuriously replete with every conceivable comfort and service that a modern hotel should provide, yet so restrained as to give an instant atmosphere of dignity and grace.' So...luxurious, but not vulgar! Date: 1931
