Immigration card that dates from the early 1900s was provided to Second Cabin passenger John Grant, who arrived via a Canadian port on the SS Corsican of the Allan Line.
The second card is a U.S. Immigration Service Landing Card issued to Clara Gale on board the S.S. Corsican, presented to U.S. Immigration Officials before landing at Quebec. Undated, circa the early 1900s.
It is probably an unprecedented occurrence in the history of the Transatlantic Liner that three Steamers of 10,000 tons register or more, should be in course of construction at one time and placed in commission within six months of each other. Ships Covered: Corsican, Grampian, Ionian, Tunisian, Victorian, and Virginian.

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.
