Don't mind us, we're just heading into the weekend on our giant flying fish! This eye-catching clipper ship card advertises the 'Ocean Express' out of New York. The ship travelled to and from San Francisco in the 1840s, bringing East coasters to the west in pursuit of gold during the gold rush. Is that giant flying fish for real? Whale sure -- any fin is possible! (Sorry -- we can't resist a good fish pun! 🐟 🐟 🐟) #ephemera #shipcards #advertising
