The Fleets

Canadian Steam Navigation Co.

A short lived company formed in 1853 to operate a mail and passenger service between Liverpool and Canada / Portland. The operation was not a success, mostly due to the company attempting to run an exacting mail service with underpowered steamers and the service ended in March 1855.
