The caption to this book ilustration by HJohn Wolcott Adams is ''The Pennsylvania Railroad lent its credit to build four Ocean liners.'' So the bigblack-hulled steamer should be on its way to Liverpool, and be named either Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana or Illinois.

Since they indicate: "No known restrictions on publication" I assume that the photo is now on public domain.
Can anyone provide more details on the ship?
