Clipper Ship Card – Titan

This is a trade card for the clipper ship “Titan” from 1880. The Titan was owned by the Henry W. Peabody company. This card is advertising a run from Boston to Melbourne then Sydney, Australia. The ship made a previous run to San Francisco in 120 days.

The card itself was printed by Franklin Press: Rand Avery & Co and measures around 4 x 6.5 inches.

Interestingly, the H.W. Peabody company still exists and has a modest website with a little of the company’s history.
