Passenger List includes a photograph of the RMS Arabic and a Warning Notice about Professional Gamblers. We have seen a number of similar notices, especially in White Star Line and Cunard passenger lists of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Typically, you would find one included with the First Class or Saloon lists. This is the first Second Class passenger list we ran across included a "Professional Gamblers" Warning Notice.
