Discovered Ticket to America

Completely AWESOME find. My great grandfather's Inspection Card that he received upon entry to America from England.

You can see his name listed: Richard Bench.

Date of departure: 24 November, 1909.

Port of departure: Liverpool.

Name of ship: Friesland.

Last residence: Smethwick, England.

I absolutely love this find. I cannot believe that it has survived this long in an old photo album. Pretty cool to think this was handed to him over a hundred years ago and to see what immigrants were handed as they entered into the country.
