Text on label from back of print: The Log and voyage of the ship "Red, White and Blue" the smallest craft that ever crossed the Atlantic (1866) with Capt. J.M. Hudson, mate Fitch, and dog Fanny from New York, NY to Margate, England July 9th- August 16th, 1866. All metal miniature 3 masted ship, 26 feet long, 6 feet and 1 inch wide. Currier and Ives felt the voyage was so newsworthy that it struck two different plates of the ship and crew. This is one of the two states of the print.
