Description

A fabulous Titanic era White Star Line ticket holder. Circa 1910. The Dominion Line was a Trans-Atlantic passenger line founded in 1870, as the Liverpool & Mississippi Steamship Co. The official name was changed in 1872 to the Mississippi & Dominion Steamship Co Ltd.
The firm amalgamated in 1902 into the International Mercantile Marine Co. After 1908, the passenger service was operated under the name "White Star-Dominion Line".
This extremely rare example would have been given to passengers to keep their boarding tickets and luggage slips in.
Most likely would only have been given to the first class personal. The interior features a description of the ships destination locations in several languages and the rear shows all of White Star Lines offices including 30 James Street, Liverpool; Now the iconic RMS Hotel. A great collectable or museum piece.
