- Royal mail S.S. America, leaving Boston
Royal mail S.S. America, leaving Boston. These early steam vessels were built of wood and in the East India service were expected to last only 8 years (4 complete voyages). Iron had begun to be used by 1818 but was not favored for a long time. It was 1840 before men discovered how to rectify the compass in an iron ship.
