British and American clipper ships, fast-moving transport vessels, dominated the high seas during the middle decades of the nineteenth century. The Three-masted, square-rigged clipper ship gained its name for 'clipping' along at record speeds, made possible with a sleek hull that sliced through the water, to which the chevron shape in the prints allude. All of the ships named in the V series were built in Great Britain: the Empress of India was a passenger-and mail-carrying ocean liner- steam and sail driven- that was clipper-bowed in her design for increased speed.
