Clipper ship, Andrew Jackson

The clipper ship Flying Cloud set a record of 89 days, 8 hours from New York to San Francisco, averaging 200 miles per day in 1845.

 In 1860 the Andrew Jackson finally beat that record by 4 hours. This was enough to claim the title of the fastest ship in the world, as the above sailing card proclaims.
