In the 19th century, before photography became commonplace, newspapers and periodicals were illustrated with wood engravings. Many of the best artists of the day earned their bread and butter creating the original designs for these prints and engraving them. These minutely detailed original prints provide wonderful glimpses into the daily life of the period.
