The tea clipper 'Shun Lee'

Inscribed 'The Shun Lee 700 Tons, Register A1. at Lloyds 14 years... Built by Wm Walker Esq. Lavender Dock, Rotherhithe, London, July 1866'. She was built by William Walker of Lavender Dock, Rotherhithe. Clippers were vessels built to carry the annual tea crop back from India and China in the late 19th century. As the first ship home would be able to command a far higher price for her cargo, speed was essential. This explains their large area of sail and sleek lines. Registered as A1 at Lloyds.
