1860 . The SS Great Eastern docked in NY.  Though designed for voyages to East Asia and Austraila (hence the name), this 5-funnel steamship made mostly trans-atlantic voyages.  It laid the first transatlantic cable in 1866.  It launched today in 1858 and was the largest ship in the world at the time.

To modern sensibilities the SS Great Eastern looks like a strange hybrid. That's because she was part modern steamship, paddle steamer and sailship at the same time.
