'Home to Thanksgiving'


One of Currier & Ives' most recognized images, 'Home to Thanksgiving', 
 illustrates the satisfaction and contentment of a city man returning to his country 
home to celebrate this traditional American holiday. He steps away from his 
elegant horse-drawn carriage to meet his welcoming parents at the 
front door. Hand-coloured lithograph, 1867 by John Schutler, 
after George Henry Durrie (1820-63)
