General description of the complete original artifact
This artifact is a ledger book from M. Rosenbaum and Co, a private bank established in 1885 by Morris Rosenbaum, an Austro-Hungarian immigrant. It was common for banks catering primarily to immigrants like M. Rosenbaum and Co to also sell steamship boat tickets to passengers travelling to and from America. The ledger contains descriptions of such ticket purchases, and includes not just details about the passenger, but also the person who purchased the tickets. The purchaser is often a member of the same family who are settled in America and are paying for the cost of bringing their family from Europe to America.
