The Antiope was part of the Thames and Mersey Line, managed by Thompson, May & Co. of Liverpool.

In her early days, she carried horses bound for Madras or Calcutta, and returned home loaded with rice. She continued in the rice trade until steamers took over.

Some years later, in 1886, she rescued the crew of the Paul Jones, an American ship that caught fire and burned and sank off the coast of Australia.

In this image, the brush of artist Efren Erese captures this fine ship in her glory.
