SA2K, these are great pictures.  I especially like the deck plan of the Lookout Bar.

I loved looking at these shots-so evocative of the era. Thanks for sharing

It would be interesting to know whether it was possible to stand on the deck outside and beneath the Lookout Bar.
On the deck plan above, there is decking shown, on the other hand in some of the old photographs, it looks as if it wouldn't have been possible.
There's a good photograph I saw in a book (Transatlantic Liners at War: Miller and Hutchins) where there's the splendid sight of QE2 sailing into in New York for the first time.
Here it looks as if there are not only crowds on the Bit Beneath the Bridge, also crew on the fo'c'stle, and possibly, people standing outside, to the fore of the Lookout Bar too.
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Rosie I am racking my brains...I believe it was possible....but not from the Lookout bar itself. I recall there were ladders from Q deck to get to exhaust vent on that deck...If I am wrong someone will shoot me down in flames...it was 44 years ago!

I want to say that I have a photo of a door (one port and one starboard) that led from the LOB to the deck in front.  It was not accessible while at sea (high winds, sea spray, etc) but I think there were two doors there that could be opened.  I'll keep looking and post if I find it.

Rod,
    This might help.  At 19 seconds and 7m 58 s into the below linked British Pathe video, you'll see two doors, one port and one stbd, outboard of the Look Out Bar windows leading out from the LOB to the narrow deck.

   My father took the below photo of the LOB interior and you'll see a wood paneled door just outboard of the last set of forward windows.  I believe this was access to the port external door.

I stood there last year in Dubai (in the kitchens) and imagined myself back to this photo. It wasn't too hard because there are still places where you can see the angle of the front and the blanked windows. I then stepped out of each of the doors in turn, something I'd always wanted to do, and onto the original deck outside. If I recall correctly it was quite a big step over the window sill.
