First steamship to cross the Atlantic

From the British Newspaper Archive, a blog post with a newspaper extract on the arrival of the first steamship at Liverpool. The date 20 June 1819.
That's much earlier than I'd thought. It was decades until steamships became the regular way to cross the Atlantic.  Read the blog post at http://goo.gl/1K6oa
