    Look on the bright side. At least none of the Titanic passengers had be be manhandled by TSA goons before (and after) boarding.

    What an exchange rate – third class fare was L7.9s from Plymouth to New York on 4/10/12; $36.25 to sail from New York to Plymouth on 4/20/12. Our dollar was only about a fifth of a pound back then.
