Steamships to the USA in the Early days of steam by Frank Bennett

Until the early part of the 19th Century the Atlantic was only crossed under sail, thereafter to 1838 there were various attempts to cross under part steam and part sail.

Mail was carried on the ships and this display consists of examples of early items carried between the UK and France to the USA.

The Great Western Steamship Company was one of the first companies with the famous  Great Western to cross the Atlantic,  and this was closely followed by other companies, the Display and talk will show examples of mail carried on the pioneering journeys incorporating the Social History contained in the mail.
