Leviathan: A couple of questions

Hello all,
I have an old colour painting looking from the stern, the funnel caps are blue. Am I correct in thinking that this scheme would have been extended to the bridge?
From old B/W photo's the bridge just looked black.
I thought this seemed a little odd, also just below the bridge is another seemingly black area looking somewhat like a black fascia. Am I not on the right track with this black scheme or...?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
Paul

At the link below there is three color pictures of a model of the Leviathan from the Smithsonian Collection. The model came from the United States Lines Offices. The views are bow, styern and side.

Many thanks surfaceblow. I apologise for being late in thanking you, I ended up veeery sidetracked. The photo although small, helped immensely.
Thanks again.
