ARTIFACT: 1910's - 1920's Eastern Steamship Lines key for Berth #12 of the S.S. New York. Eastern Steamship Co. was established in 1901 by Charles Wyman Morse through the merge and consolidation of three shipping companies that controlled a number of local lines on the Maine coast. Shortly after, a court battle with J.P Morgan and New Haven Railroad, Morse was indicted on conspiracy charges that led to the eventual bankruptcy of the company. It was renewed as the Eastern Steamship Lines in 1925 and enjoyed a stretch of coverage from Canada on down to Virginia until 1941. The company changed hands a few times after WWII until 1970 when the Norwegian shipping firm of Gotass-Larsen purchased the line and restyled and renamed the company that eventually became Admiral Cruises. The large brass key shows the #12 on one side and the other reads: "EASTERN S. S. LINES S. S. NEW YORK".
