Sign Of The Times


From the column "From Today's Times" in the Ottawa Citizen on this day in 1949:
The shipping correspondent quotes examples of effects of the 43 percent increases in sterling fares on Atlantic shipping as a result of devaluation. The first class minimum rate on the Queen Mary rises from 91 to 130 pounds, the cabin class minimum from 56 to 80 and the tourist minimum from 41 to 59 pounds.
