Longitudinal section and plans of the upper deck and holds of the steamship La Champagne, an ocean liner sailing for the French Line. Primarily located in the front part of the ship were the first-class accommodations, divided into luxury, family, and ordinary cabins. At the rear were twelve bedrooms accommodating seventy-five second-class passengers. Immigrants traveled in the steerage.

A typical bedroom (one has to assume in the first class) is described by the author as being furnished with two bunks, screened by a curtain, on one side, a convertible sofa on the opposite side, a double washbasin with a swing mirror, coat-pegs, and a net to store light luggage.
