Inman and International Steamship Co

From Graces Guide

1886 the Inman Line was in serious financial difficulties and could not raise the money to replace the ageing fleet. Voluntary liquidation in October. Assets were purchased by the American-owned International Navigation Co, which already owned the American Line and Red Star Line - presumably giving rise to Inman and International Steamship Co.

1888 Commissioned 2 ships from J. and G. Thomson - SS City of New York and RMS City of Paris

1892 The U.S. Mail contract was awarded to the company, providing that the ships were transferred to the U.S. flag.

1893 The last Inman sailing from Liverpool; the service was transferred to Southampton; all ships were U.S. flagged under the ownership of the American Line.
