I'd like to alert anyone who may be interested of a Victorian Military Surgeon's Trunk that bears an original travel label of the Furness Line Steamer from 1895. The label indicates that the trunk's owner was travelling to St John City, Halifax, Nova Scotia on the Furness Line. Research has established this label to date from 1895.
Click on link and see photo 5 for "Furness Line Steamer" label and full description.

It would suggest, reading the label that the steamer was the "St John City" ? could be wrong

St John City is in Halifax, Nova Scotia. (I googled it, my geography's not that good)

Actually, I think you're right. Just regoogled "St John City" and there was indeed a ship (even two) of that name. see link
