Grandma Rick saved a few items from the Champlain.  Here is the list of passengers (do they still hand these out on ships?  I can’t wait to find out!).  It’s one of my favorite pieces of ephemera from her entire trip, in terms of design.

And here are some of the dinner menus from her time on board; as you know from her journal, she was quite a fan of the food!

I believe these were printed on the ship- each one has an engraved cover, and hand-set type for the interior.
