I'd be interested in the port at Liverpool as well.

1 - How many days ahead of time would immigrants typically arrive at the port prior to boarding their ship to America?
2 - Did immigrants have to buy their steamship tickets at the port or were they purchased beforehand through the mail and delivered to their home?
3 - What was a typical Hamburg-American Line steamship ticket price in 1891?

thank you
