|"The steamship City of Paris, a 10,499 gross ton twin screw passenger liner, was built at Glasgow, Scotland. Completed in 1889, she soon began a series of record trans-Atlantic passages, earning the "Blue Ribband" for fast passenger service. She was transferred to the U.S. flag in 1893 and renamed Paris, but remained active on the passenger route between the U.S. and England."
