Interior photos of Mauretania

Hi together!

I've been looking for good quality interior photographs of Mauretania in the web for a long time, but I was deeply disappointed by what I found. I'm really surprised that there are almost no photos of the ship's rooms to found as it was doubtless on of the most famous and greatest liners in history... I've "googled" all kinds of headwords as "Mauretania", "RMS M...", "M... interior", "M... dining room", but there were almost no results - most of them were about the second Maury from the 1930s...

Best one was that, at least a number of photos, but in a very bad quality: http://www.merchantnavyofficers.com/cunard6.html

Especially I would be interested in a good shot of the dining room (especially one showing the dome), I've never seen one... :oops: I'm really ashamed of that as I'm a real classic liner geek.

If anybody knows a link to good interior pictures of the Mauretania or can even post one here, I would be so glad and thankful! :D

Best regards, Ludwig
Ludwig Bader

After months of searching I was finally successful by accident:

This site http://www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/mauretania/fitting%20out.html provides a stunning amount of high quality interior photos (and a lot of other ones, too) of the Mauretania.

But all in all I have to admit that I do prefer Lusitania's interior... Especially her dining room is much more elegant and beautiful than the one on Mauretania. But of course it's all a matter of taste... ;)

I've seen photos of the first Mauretania, & they are drop dead gorgeous. The Dining Room, the Smoking Room, the Lounge, & everything done in mahogony & dark oak. The Mauretania was a awesome, & in her time along with Olympic, she was the ship of choice.
