The First Class Smoking Room was exclusively a retreat for the male passengers and was designed to resemble the fashionable gentleman’s clubs of New York and London. The style was early Georgian and while that usually favoured intricate carvings, this was largely replaced by inlaid mother-of-pearl which gave the rich mahogany paneling an even more favourable effect. Around the room the stained glass windows were a work of art themselves and depicted nautical and country scenes.

In this room, politicians solved the world’s problems and businessmen brokered deals, while attentive stewards served a wide selection of cocktails, liqueurs, beers and of course cigars and cigarettes. Some would have emulated the mood of Monaco and relaxed over a game of cards. With the colours in this room being predominantly blue and red, the room would have had a warm, rich feel to it.
