TSS City of Belfast was a passenger vessel built for the Barrow Steam Navigation Company in 1893.[1]

History

TSS City of Belfast was built by Laird Brothers of Birkenhead for the Barrow Steam Navigation Company. She was launched in January 1893 by Mrs Little, Mayoress of Barrow.[2] She was used on the Barrow to Belfast route, although she occasionally made trips to Douglas in the Isle of Man.

She was sold to the Midland Railway in 1907[3]

In 1914 she was renamed HMS City of Belfast, before reverting to her original name after the war. In 1923 she was acquired by the London Midland and Scottish Railway, but in 1925 they sold her to Constantine Togias. She was renamed Nicolaos Togias. In 1933 she was renamed Kephallina. She was sunk on 13 August 1941 off the Egyptian coast.
