Tom and Agnes Christopher Collection
Description: Dated 1835-1857, this print by Nathaniel Currier titled 'Sunday Morning in the Olden Time' shows a family with a horse outside their home, with a group of children playing by the horse. The text that flanks the title at the bottom of the print is a quote from Welsh poet George Herbert which reads "O day most calm, most bright./The fruit of this, the next world's bud,/the endorsement of supreme delight,/writ by a friend, and with his blood./The couch of time, care's balm and bay;/the week were dark but for thy light,/thy torch doth show the way." The note below the image on the right side reads "from an engraving by S. W. Reynolds" and the note on the left reads "painted by William Collins ESQ R.A." View on Ohio Memory.
