Front cover: Another brochure printed in the 1920s depicting the Celtic, one of White Star's 'Big Four,' now an older liner being advertised as 'Famous Cabin Liners to Europe' featuring White Star and Red Star liners touting their spacious cabin class service amenities being comparable to those of a high-class English club.

Back cover: A 1920s White Star - Dominion Line brochure offering the traveller "...unique advantages of going to Europe by the St. Lawrence route with sailings every Saturday during the summer. The new Regina and Doric combine every modern improvement in the art of catering to the comfort of ocean passengers." The older Megantic and Canada were relegated to cabin class, which in the following advertisement aimed at the modest budget traveller, the description was attractive.
