Repro ID: P20771
Description: The pleasure steamer 'Koh i Nor' (1892) at the Old Swan Pier, by Cannon Street Railway Bridge. Alongside her is the 'Royal Sovereign'. Known to many as the 'Jewel of the Thames', she ran a service from Old Swan Pier to Southend and Clacton for many years. She later moved to the Tilbury - Margate service, and was broken up in 1919. During the census of March 1901, she was in the West India Docks - as most pleasure steamers ran a summer and autumn service only, many would lay up there for the winter months.
