Haskell & Allen were one of the chief rivals of the New York firm, and this charming image shows why their prints were so popular. Haskell started as picture-framer and print seller; listed in 1868 Boston directory as partner in Haskell & Ripley (18 Hanover St.). A year later he formed partnership with George F. Allen. In 1873 they moved to 61 Hanover St. They prospered until about 1875, and they went bankrupt in April 1878.
