Hi Charani,

The Bristol City Line Fleet had ten steamships trading to New York at the
beginning of the 20th century.

I looked in the crew lists for ships leaving Bristol 1901, 1906 and 1911,
but the only HELPS recorded was Thomas HELPS, 33 years old, born in
Bristol, who was a Fireman on the 'Boston City' in August 1901.
