Subject: [Q-R] PAssenger Faires

Someone was inquiring about transatlantic passenger fares. These fares are from British Isles. Grant

Passenger fares ( Not first class!!!!!!) for 1900 on the White Star Line.. Remember..... they owned the Titanic.

McDonald is a town in Washington County (about 30 miles ESE of Pittsburgh) so the fare must also include Railroad fare. Gives some idea of what the immigrants were paying .

Fares on the White Star Line

Liverpool to McDonald $18.40

Queenstown to McDonald $21.40

Glasgow to McDonald $20.80

Londonderry to McDonald $19.60

Belfast to McDonald $19.60
