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.

SS La Bourgogne Famous Travelers During 1889

EDISON, the celebrated electrician, was the social lion among the passengers on La Bourgogne, of the French Line, hence for Havre recently, and may have mentally called out for deliverance from his friends. The Right Rev. Bishop Littlejohn, of Long Island, was a fellow passenger. The French steamships have carried a remarkably large number of eminent and celebrated people to Europe the last six months.
