Illustration of the steamer Iroquois flying the flag of the Clyde Steamship Company. Built in 1888, the 300 ton Iroquois was the first steel steamer ever built in America for commercial purposes. Established in Philadelphia in 1844 by Thomas Clyde, the Clyde Steamship Company owned and operated numerous steamships connecting Philadelphia with east coast ports, terminating in Jacksonville. Moving their headquarters to New York in 1872, the company extended its service to include Boston, New York and ports in the West Indies.
