Description To-day marks the beginning of rate-cutting on the western passage across the Atlantic, but it affects only the first and to a lesser extent the second class passenger. This picture deals with the third-class passenger, who is not affected, and whose fare varies from £5 10. to £6. 15s. It shows a typical motley assortment from [...] the passage through the great British port. They are about to board the White Star liner at the great landing stage at Liverpool.
