More Clipper ship cards

Found some more cool examples of clipper ship cards:

There can be multiple cards for a particular ship, here’s two for the Panama. The first is for New York to San Francisco and the second from San Francisco to Australia. Don’t know if these cards are from the same trip (different legs) or not.

Panama - NY to SF
Panama to Australia
Panama - SF to Australia

The designs also range from the very plain to really elaborate:

Bunker Hill
Bunker Hill

Looks like the majority of these cards were produced by Nesbitt & Co. printers, although alot of cards don’t state who printed them. I’ll post more interesting examples and information as I find it.
