Here's the inside of the BOAC Solent III at Oakland, California and it differs greatly in layout to the Solent IV at MOTAT:

There's a trip down memory lane alright.
I haven't seen that type of pull through seat belts in over 50 years (I wore them many times too).
They were outlawed eons ago.
Thanks for posting those.
In water flying attitude is everything

Keeping in mind the photos above, you may or may not like this cheesy video. However, it was filmed inside the Solent III City of Cardiff at Oakland:
