This photo shows the interior of Father Browne's cabin. According to Father O'Donnell: "When Ballard found the Titanic, he discovered that it was in two pieces, nearly half a mile apart. The ship split in two right through Father Browne's suite of rooms. He was 37a. The matching room on the other side of the grand staircase was inhabited by Thomas Andrews, the builder of Titanic from Harland and Wolf."
