I/C #1 John Gardner 5 shares 1863. Steamer Metropolis vignette. Inc In MA. Signed by President Jabey? 25c revenue stamp. "The Bay State Steamboat Company was chartered in 1846, and operated regular service from New York to Fall River. The route retained the name "Fall River Line" through several changes of ownership. This connected to rail service from Fall River to Boston. Bay State sold its boats to a new company in 1863, the Boston, Newport & New York Steamboat Company, which moved its terminal to Newport, R.I. By 1869, the company had five boats, the Bay State, Empire State, Metropolis, Newport, and Old Colony. These steamers were all sold in turn to a competitor, the Narragansett Steamship Company, in 1869. The line was then acquired by the Old Colony Steamboat Company in 1874, and then New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company in 1894. The Fall River Line became a division of the New England Navigation Company in 1906. Steamship service on this line ended in 1937." from rihs.org. . State: Massachusetts City: Date: 1863
