I am after a picture of the clipper 'Champion of the seas'. The holder of the; Longest days run of a sailing vessel. I've been through most of the sites that tell the history of her but none show a pic of 'Champion . . . .
I want to place an image above a brief story of her record breaking journey, in our newsletter.
Thanks for any help,
Tony

OK, my eyes are not what they used to be.

Each photograph is on a different website, but they appear to be the same negative, one reversed.

The photograph appears in David R.MacGregor's "Clipper Ships" with the ship facing as in the first picture above.
It was taken at Donald McKay's shipyard at East Boston in 1854 and the flag at the main truck is that of the the Black Ball line.
