Kudos to Brian: see his comment to the left on the “lassoing polar bears” and Ernestina connection. See another New York connection with Ernestina here.

The first scheduled trans-Atlantic packet service ran between New York and Liverpool 190 years ago, the Black Ball Line, marked by its flag: a black ball on a red field.

I don’t imagine they did hull painting –black ball on red field–back in 1817.
