One of the most marvelous parts of Titanic was its grand staircase which was also replicated in the movie. Olympic, Titanic’s sister ship, had practically the same one. The only existing pictures of the staircases are those from the Olympic. No known pictures of the staircase in Titanic exist.
26. The Grand Staircase After the Accident
However, there are photos of what is left of the grand staircase – not much, unfortunately. While the movie Titanic was filmed, James Cameron stated that the replicated staircase broke off and floated away. It is believed that the same thing happened to the actual staircase.
27. Titanic’s Boiler
The first part of Titanic that was found by Robert Ballard in his 1985 expedition was one large boiler. Ballard compared the boiler to the pictures of the ship from 1911. The next day, he used his Argo again and discovered a large part of the wreck.
28. Stern of the Ship
Ballard’s 1985 expedition is also responsible for the discovery of the ship’s stern, or, at least, what was left of it. Until the wreck was discovered, many scientists did not believe that the ship’s hull was torn in half before the ship sank. However, after discovering the stern and bow a third of a mile apart, it was confirmed that the ship did break into two parts.
