The Scotia was the finest and the last paddle steamer to be built for trans-Atlantic service. It was built in the shipyards of Glasgow and painted when it was in dock at Liverpool. It made regular journeys across the Atlantic between Liverpool and New York. In this image the ship is pictured off the coast of Newfoundland at Cape Race.
