The Fleets

Mallory Line / Clyde-Mallory LinePoster

Mallory Line (New York & Texas Steamship Co.), New York (1866-1932), one of the old family-owned passenger lines in the coastwise trade. As its formal name suggests, the line connected New York with Galveston, Texas, and later expanded with routes to New Orleans, Havana, and Mobile.

The company was bought by Charles Morse's short-lived Consolidated Steamship Lines, then was transferred after Morse went bankrupt to the Atlantic, Gulf and West Indies (AGWI) SS Co. AGWI continued to provide service under the Mallory name and flag until 1932, when it combined Mallory's routes with those of the old Clyde Line (also an AGWI subsidiary) under the name of the Clyde-Mallory Line. Clyde-Mallory Line was sold in 1949 to the Bull Line and the company name disappeared.
