Re: the cost of a transatlantic cruise in 1905 #general

My source of information is a cousin who, happily, wrote a bit og an
autobiography. I quote "In 1905, we had pogroms in Akkerman, Odessa, and
Kashira and most of the Jews were trying to get out and come to this
country. Shipping companies [the German and the Swiss had, at that time,
a competition and were selling tickets on the boat for $10. 00 apiece".]
