I scanned the menu from the Farewell Dinner on the s.s. Homeric, the ocean liner my mum, brother, sister, and I came to Canada on, from England. I remember a fair amount, like my brother throwing up the whole way across (when we disembarked he'd become so thin his socks - fastened by garters of course - fell down. I remember a sweeping staircase, and the only movie the ship had for children, "Song of the South," which took me years to figure out. We had to leave our dog Bobby with my father's parents, as he was a leg-humper. My mother was game until the last minute, but traveling with 3 children and a mountain of trunks AND a leg-humping dog was apparently going a bit too far.
From a liner website: "...the old HOMERIC was all charm and style..."
