Fall River Line Interiors provides images of the interior design of steamships aboard this historic and local steamship company. The Fall River Line (1847 – 1937) was a combination steamboat and railroad connection between New York City and Boston. It consisted of a railroad journey between Boston and Fall River, Massachusetts, where passengers would then board steamboats for the journey through Narragansett Bay and Long Island Sound to the line’s own Hudson River dock in Manhattan. For many years, passengers preferred this route for travel between the two major cities. The line was extremely popular, and regarded as having the most advanced and luxurious steamboats of the day.
