This graphic was published as a full broadsheet page in the South China Morning Post, the day before the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

The isometric layout highlights the main features and rooms.  Three colours were used to highlight the access to different areas of the ship depending on what class of ticket was purchased.

A section at the foot of the page explained the propulsion of the ship. Steam to drive the engines and turbine was provided by 29 coal-fired boilers. Stokers continuously shovelled coal into the furnaces to maintain power.
