The Clipper Nightingale
"The Piscataqua-built clipper Nightingale is perhaps the most beautiful sailing ship ever launched into these local waters. Built by the Hanscoms of Eliot, Maine, the ship first slid into the Piscataqua River on June 16, 1851. " -- from Jenny Lind and the Clipper Nightingale Figurehead, by Karl-Eric Svardskog, Portsmouth Marine Society Volume 27.
