There was a time when intrepid adventurers set out to conquer the world. That spirit is still alive in the US and particularly here in California. At Putney, we believe charting a financial course is critical for all.  The model above is on display in the Putney conference room. Several Putney principals are avid sailors and this ship is world famous. The Bluenose was a Canadian fishing and racing schooner from Nova Scotia built in 1921. A celebrated racing ship and fishing vessel, Bluenose, under the command of Angus Walters, became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930s. The name "bluenose" originated as a nickname for Nova Scotians from as early as the late 18th century. The Bluenose has appeared on Canadian stamps, is currently on the Canadian dime and on the license plate of the province of Nova Scotia. ( Ray Lent collection )
