During the nineteenth century, lithographic publishers such as Currier & Ives, from New York and the Kellogg firm, from Hartford, issued thousands of images in separately issued prints. These prints were intended as art suitable for framing for the American people. The wonderful perspective on the myriad subjects which these images depict offers us a unique look through the eyes of that earlier time.
