Titanic Images - The Shipbuilder - 5: Refrigeration

The refrigerating installation on board the Olympic and Titanic embodies all the latest facilities for efficient cold storage, ship’s provision rooms, situated aft on the lower and orlop decks (see Plate V), are most extensive, and include separate cold chambers for beef, mutton, poultry and game, fish, vegetables, fruit, milk and butter, bacon and cheese, flowers, mineral waters, wine and spirits, and champagne, which can thus be kept at the temperatures most suitable for preservation in each case.
