CUTTY SARK is a clipper ship. Built in 1869, she served as a merchant vessel, and then as a training ship until being put on public display in 1954. She is preserved in dry dock in Greenwich, London. Badly damaged by fire on 21 May 2007 while undergoing conservation, the vessel is being restored and is expected to reopen in 2012. I was lucky enough to take a photo before.
