The paddle steamer City of Worcester illustrates the lid of a 60 piece jigsaw puzzle box. Harlan and Hollingsworth of Wilmington, Delaware, built the ship, which the Norwich & New York Transportation Company launched in 1881 as one of the first iron-hulled steamers to ply the waters of Long Island Sound between New York City and New London, Connecticut. The ship made daily trips between Pier 40, North River, at the foot of Watts Street to New London, where passengers boarded trains to Worcester, Boston and other New England destinations.
