A rare example of an Embarkation Notice from the 1920s for a transatlantic voyage of Cabin Passenger Miss McKellar, on the SS Laurentic of the White Star Line. The two-page flyer featured a photograph of the ship and six photographs of Cabin Class accommodations. It was likely provided to the passenger at the time of booking by the White Star Line agents in Glasgow.
