Currier and Ives employed a sizable number of male and female employees in their Spruce Street manufactory. The front windows of the storefront displayed the firm’s latest offerings. On the floors upstairs, artists, lithographers, printers, and colorists worked on different floors in various tasks—all directed towards producing large runs of their popular prints for a national audience.
