Currier and Ives was founded by Nathaniel Currier (American, 1813-1888) in 1835 as "the Grand Central Depot for Cheap and Popular Prints," but changed its name with the addition of James Merritt Ives (American, 1824-1895) in 1857. The company created over 7000 popular lithographs depicting American life until 1907.

The sheet is unevenly toned. There are tide lines along the lower left and right corners and the upper left corner. There is a small but deep crease in the lower left corner.
