List of Second Cabin Passengers by the Inman & International S.S. Co.'s Steamship "City of New York," from Liverpool to New York

by (STEAMSHIPS -- INMAN LINE -- "CITY OF NEW YORK")

Condition: See description


N.p. [London]: Inman and International Steamship Company, Limited, 1891 June 24. 12mo. Stiff tan folder. (4pp). Good plus. Bit of minor separating at single horizontal fold; mild soiling and edgewear. Printed in London by London Stereoscopic & Photographic Co. Ld., this program was given to passengers of this steamship. The front wrapper bears a highly decorative nautical them and title in elaborate and varied typefaces. Inner side-by-side pages note the main ship's officers (Captain Arthur W. Lewis, Purser Thomas Kinsey and Surgeon R. Lloyd Parker), but otherwise consist of a simple two-column A to Z listing of all passengers. Rear wrapper depicts, within an ornate border, a nice lithographic of an Inman steamship plowing through choppy seas. The 3-mast, 3-funnel "City of New York" was built in Glasgow in 1888 and plied the Atlantic via various routes for years, changing hands several times before finally being scrapped in 1923. Condition a bit delicate, but overall a quite attractive and interesting piece of steamship ephemera.
