The Manchester Liners company was formed in 1898 and ran until the 1980s.  It's history is inexorably linked with the Manchester Ship Canal: the company pioneered the use of ocean going ships on there.   The company transported both cargo and passengers, its trade being mostly Transatlantic with some Mediterranean trade.  All its ships were given the name Manchester plus another word, eg Manchester Regiment.  Its offices were in Old Bank Street, near St Ann's Sqaure before moving to the more modern Furness House at the docks (now Salford Quays).
