Description: All immigrants and visitors from abroad were subjected to checks by Customs officials at the place of landing. Unlike today, the officials were more concerned with dutiable goods than with prohibited items. The photograph accompanied the chapter on the Customs service in 'Living London' (1901-02), edited by George R. Sims.
