SS Arawa Ephemera Collection
All Digitized Ephemera for the SS Arawa available at the GG Archives. Common items of ephemera in our maritime collection include passenger lists, brochures, event and entertainment programs, and other memorabilia produced for a voyage or ship.
Very rare receipt for Emigrant Tickets purchased for travel on the Great Western Railway from F. C. Cooper & Co., Stourbridge, for Steerage Passengers Mr. & Mrs. Asbury from Kidderminster to Paddington Station in London to board the RMS Arawa bound for New Zealand.
Ephemera contained in the GG Archives collection represent the souvenirs provided to the passengers of each voyage. Many of these souvenir ephemeral items have disappeared over the years.
Our selection varies considerably by ship, and likely contains only a sampling of what was originally produced and printed by the steamship lines.
