#148 in "Currier and Ives Prints: An Illustrated Checklist" by Frederic A. Conningham.

Currier & Ives, a name so synonymous with American culture that it was given reference in Leroy Anderson song "Sleigh Ride" in 1948, several decades after the firm closed. Currier & Ives was one of the largest print publication firms in the world, publishing well over 7,000 images in their seventy-three year history. Each image was drawn on stone and printed by hand in the traditional method of lithography. Although the steam lithographic press was available at the time, Nathaniel Currier, who founded the firm, did not like the impression quality it produced. So, they stuck with the traditional hand printing methods.
