Passenger liner 'City of New York' (1888) at anchor, River Mersey, Liverpool
built by J & G Thomson, Glasgow in 1888 for the Inman Line with distinctive black funnels with a broad white band. She was a 10,499 gross ton vessel with a clipper stem and three masts, with accommodation for over 1,000 passengers. She left Liverpool on her maiden voyage for Queenstown and New York. By 1893 she was transferred to American Line renamed 'New York' and put under the US flag. She is shown flying the American flag so this painting may date to this period. In 1922 she left New York for the last time for the American Black Sea Line on a voyage to Naples and Constantinople where she was sold at auction by order of the US government, and was scrapped at Genoa in 1923. Throughout her life, her name changed four times from the 'City of New York' to 'New York' 'Harvard' and finally 'Plattsburg'.
