In 1857, Nathaniel Currier and James Ives became publishing partners in what was to become one of America's most historically significant chroniclers of American history from the 1850's to the 1880's. Currier & Ives recorded a wide range of subjects, events, and common happenings of American life. The firm employed many well known artists, but only a few of them are credited as the creator of their own images. The hand colored prints have become highly collectible and are found in many museums. The business closed in 1907 as new printing technologies and changing tastes emerged.
