SS Constitution

Postby nuccia » 16 Mar 2007, 06:38

Does anyone have any information about the SS Constitution or has sailed on this ship? Most of my family arrived in Canada aboard this ship and I was wondering how much a ticket would have cost in the 1950's. Would also be nice if someone had a ticket stub/receipt from that voyage.

Thanks :D

For memorabiia like menus, tickets, brochures, sailing schedules, you might periodically check ebay for items for sale. No need to purchase, you can save the scanned pic to your computer.

Best,
Biff
