Mrs Harris - Falling Down The Grand Staircase

On Sunday April 14th Mrs Harris had "taken a tumble down a flight of stairs" and had broken her arm. Do you think it was the Grand Staircase? This scene was shown in the movie SOS Titanic (1979). You can see it here:

I thought it was the Grand Staircase, although I'm not which one. But when I read about the story, it mentioned the GSC. And it would make sense. You could certainly break *something* bouncing down all of that marble.

Marble? :?: What marble? Straw oak or the like, those linoleum like floor times (or was it GP rubber..), brass toe kick, gilt metal balustrades, plaster, varnish, glue, that repair of sawdust and glue...but...marble? Where? Was this in the German film? ;)

Didn't think titanic had marble like German ships had.

How did they mend broken bones back then? This would ensure her a spot in a lifeboat.

They put her arm in a sling, Aly. You might be interested in reading "Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage" for a more in depth look at the Harrises (providing I'm not getting my books mixed up here).
