Produced by the famous and still-operating Shanks Co., Ltd, this full-scale drawing shows the sink backs as proposed for the B Deck cabins on Aquitania. They are very similar to those of Olympic and Titanic, and they should be because Shanks supplied bath ware to the White Star ships as well. This is to real-time scale, i.e. the plan is as large as the sink would be in real life. Written on the back “Wash basin fittings B Dk Aquitania”. In very good condition with some small holes at the folds and some age spotting. Measures about 30” x 20½”. Likely the only one left of the dozens or more drawings Shanks would have done for Cunard in this period.
