On the afternoon of Monday, 22nd November, 1869, a beautiful little clipper ship was launched from Scott and Linton's shipyard at Dumbarton. She bore a name that was to become famous...I'll bet you wonder what that little round building is near the Thames. You'll never guess so go read about it here. Then you'll understand this.
UPDATE: On May 21, 2007, the Cutty Sark burned. I captured the original Windows Live Local image.
