This hand-colored lithograph depicts the innovative SS 'Sarah Sands sailing past a distant hilly shoreline in the left background. The iron steamship was built in 1846 and operated between Liverpool and New York until she was charted to the Empire City Line. She operated from San Francisco to Panama City until 1850 when the Pacific Mail Steamship Company purchased her. American, British, and Australian flags fly at the top of her masts. Below the image are the descriptive title, publication detail, and the ship's measurements.
