I've just finished this most excellent account of the great transatlantic liners and the men who designed and built them.

It has pictures of the steerage spaces on the Mauretania - quite nice.
It brought to life ships whose names I've just seen on the Finnish Immigration Institute website with Oceanic being the latest tonight. Oceanic was the first modern ocean liner. It was launched in 1870 and in another thread, I gave the name of a boy who traveled on that ship in 1905.
