The SS Caledonia - the ship upon which my voyage to America and a new life took place. I had to leave Musselburgh , and the only life I had ever known, to travel to Glasgow to board this ship with , what seemed like, thousands of others on the same journey

Look at all these people crammed into steerage

My Grandfather, Arthur, had this grand idea that our family would have a better life in America. We will be leaving a life on the farm, and taking ours skills as hard workers to the City of New York to work in the growing factories. Father hopes that we will be able to move farther west after we have saved some money.
