1953 Ship Passenger Lists

Passenger booklets for 1953 in the GG Archives collection represent the souvenir list provided to the passengers of each cabin class (and other classes). Many of these souvenir passenger lists have disappeared over the years. Our collection contains a sampling of what was originally produced and printed by the steamship lines. They are often used to illustrate family history books for immigrants from this period in time.
