The paddle steamer 'City of London'
A ship's portrait of the paddle steamer 'City of London' shown broadside-on. She is shown off the coast with land visible in the distance. The 'City of London' was an iron steamer built on the Clyde in 1844 by Mr Napier for the Aberdeen and London Steam Navigation Company. She was furnished with spacious cabins and roomy state rooms. By the mid 9th century, regular paddle steamship services from London to many British and European ports were becoming established.
