The Titanic Barber

The RMS Titanic sank on April 15, 1912. Five days later, the liner's chief barber Charles Weikman gave his personal account of the sinking of the Titanic. So I searched for a photo of the Titanic's two barbershops - one for 2nd class passengers and one for 1st class (where Mr. Weikman worked).Unfortunately, I couldn't locate it, but I found this photo of the barbershop in the RMS Olympic (also known as "Old Reliable"), which is supposed to be near identical to the one that would have been in the Titanic. The RMS Olympic was one of the Olympic-class ocean liners built for the White Star Line, which also included the Titanic and Britannic. If anyone is able to locate a picture of the Titanic's actual barbershop, send me an email.
