A Rare Image Of What The Boiler Rooms Were Like
Here you can see what the reality was like for those who worked in the Titanic’s boiler rooms. Keeping the ship moving was a 24/7 job that was dirty and harsh. There were six boiler rooms that hel 29 boilers. 179 men worked round the clock to fuel the boilers with 600 tonnes of coal every single day.
These workers were paid well, but none escaped. The boiler rooms were some of the first to be flooded when the iceberg hit.
