Outbound Passengers, Baggage, Arrival at Queenstown
Passengers arriving at Philadelphia by rail can secure a hansom or "four-wheeler" at any of the depots and be conveyed with their baggage direct to the piers, foot of Washington Avenue. Or, they can arrange with the Union Transfer Agent on the train or at the depot to transfer the baggage at a cost of thirty-five cents for each piece, and take either a Market or Chestnut Street car east to Second Street, at either of which intersections the passenger will board a Mifflin Street car which runs south on Second Street to Washington Avenue. The pier is two blocks from where the passenger leaves the car.
Arrival at Liverpool, Passengers for Scotland, North of Ireland and London
About eighteen hours after departure from Queenstown, the American Line steamer arrives at Liverpool, landing her passengers at the Prince's Landing Stage, adjoining the new Riverside Station of the London and Northwestern Railway, from which are run, under certain conditions, special trains direct to London on arrival of steamers from America. When there is no time to land here before the dock gates close, the steamer runs into the Huskisson Dock, where the Company's pier is located.
