The CASPIAN was a 2,728 gross ton steam ship owned by the Allan Line of Liverpool. She was built by the London & Glasgow Co., Glasgow and was launched on 1 February 1870. Her details were - length 349.6 ft x beam 38 ft, clipper stem, one funnel, three masts (rigged for sail), iron construction, single screw and a speed of 11 knots. There was capacity for 80-1st and 600-3rd class passengers. She started her maiden voyage on 5 November 1870 when she sailed from Liverpool for Quebec and Montreal. On 8 December 1870 she made her first Liverpool - Baltimore sailing and in 1882 was fitted with compound engines by Laird Bros, Birkenhead. In 1882 she was used as a troopship for the Egyptian Expedition and then returned to the North Atlantic trade. She started her last Liverpool - Baltimore voyage on 27 September 1892 and was then laid up until 1896 when she made a single round voyage between Glasgow and Boston (commencing on 11 December 1896). On 20 March 1897 she commenced a single round voyage between Glasgow and Portland and was scrapped later the same year.
