Did you know...
... that today is the birthday of Nathaniel Currier (1813)?
The American printmaker of Currier and Ives was born in
Roxbury, Massachusetts. At the age of 15 he was apprenticed to
William and John Pendleton of Boston, who had set up the first
lithographic establishment in America. His apprenticeship
served him well as he went on to be the largest publisher of
lithographs.
