Not on view

A mid-nineteenth century view of a Baptist Chapel on Cherry Street, between Rutger and Pike Streets, Manhattan, New York, opened in 1848.

When Frances "Fanny" Flora Bond Palmer moved to New York from England in 1844, she already was an accomplished artist and printmaker. Palmer and her husband Seymour initially operated a small printshop in lower Manhattan, and issued this work. By the time their business closed and they moved to Brooklyn in 1849, Nathaniel Currier was commissioning drawings from Fanny. After Currier & Ives was established in 1857, Palmer was hired as a staff artist and became one of the leading women lithographers of the 19th century.
