Do you hate flying as much as I do?

Do you long for a more civilized way of getting from point A to point B? If so, this will probably make you sick.
The above is a sailing roster for May and June indicating steamship line,ships and their ports of call as well as sailing dates. It would likely have been posted on a travel board in a hotel or similar venue. The year is not stated but based on the names of ships and other clues I have a high degree of confidence that it is from the spring of 1924. You may have to play around with the right click function on your mouse to see it full sized or try clicking here.

See here for a travel guide (full text with photos) from 1910.
