The steamship 'Persia' in a breeze
A portrait of the 'Persia' shown in broadside view, with the large paddle and funnels prominently displayed. The name of the ship is visible on the port bow; she flies the flag of the United States. The 'Persia' was a Cunard Royal Mail Ship and the last of the great passenger paddle steamers. On deck a number of figures can be seen. A very successful and popular ship, she was built of iron and carried 250 cabin class passengers. Regular sailings were made between Liverpool and New York when the average time for a crossing was nine and a half days.
