Allan Line Royal Mail Steamers


Allan Line Royal Mail Steamers

The Allan Line was founded in 1854 as the "Montreal Ocean Steamship Company". The Company was later known as the Allan Line after one of its founders, Hugh Allan. In 1891 the company took over the State Line (founded 1872). After this the company was often referred to as the Allan & State Line. The "Allan & State Line" name was retired by the end of 1905, and the "Allan Line" name was no longer used by the end of 1918 brought about by the sale of the Allan Line to the Canadian Pacific Ocean Services Ltd (CPOS, now CP Ships) in 1917.

Allan Line Royal Mail Steamers Second Cabin Passengers "Victorian" Friday, October 28, 1910 From Liverpool To Quebec & Montreal

"Based on our analysis of the passenger list, including room and berth assignments, we concluded the following. Of the 192 passengers in Second Cabin, there were 153 (79.7%) adults, 38 (19.8%) Children and 1 infant. Gender counts were 78 (40.6%) males, 110 (57.3%) females, and 4 (2.1%) unknown. The marital status appeared to be 67 married (representing 43.8% of the adults), 118 unmarried and 7 could not be determined. There were probably 9 servants included in the Second Cabin passenger list."
