SEA CAPTAIN'S ANALYSIS OF WARD LINES STEAMER SS NIAGARA NEW ROUTE

The photographs were taken through glass. The documents condition are excellent. See details!
 
Framed size 37 1/4" W x 22 1/2" H                                                                  Document sizes see below
 
Presented is a framed record of the ship's captain of the New York & Cuba Mail Steamship Company's SS Niagara  consisting of three documents comprised of:
  • A list of ports and the distance between them for each leg on the company's letterhead
  • A Proforma Statement of Expense and Income for a proposed new route to Uraguay and the Argentine Republic.
  • A Task Log for a passage from Vera Cruz to Havana, Cuba in 1888
PROVENANCE: This fine collection of historically interesting steam ship records were the property of Civil War Navy veteran and sea captain, Spiro V. Bennis, who saw service in the Civil War as acting master of the USS Antona, USS Aroostook & USS Stockdale, all of which operated mostly in Mobile Bay. He also took part in the Fish River expedition of 1864. Afterwards he served as captain of the New York & Cuba Mail Steamship Co's., SS Niagara before she was requisitioned by the U.S. Navy to serve in the Spanish American War. In August 1985,Captain Bennis rescued the crew of the German Bark Caroline Suzanne during a violent storm off the coast of Florida. He was awarded a gold watch by Emperor William for his heroic serviced. After this he was put in charge of building two steamships for the Ward Line in Delaware. The NY&CSC was a subsidiary of the Ward Line whose operations dated back from 1840 to 1954. He died in 1892 in California.

These documents represent a very rare record of the detailed approach that was taken in evaluating the profitability of ocean routes by a steamship company, and are of historic significance.
