Adopt a Rescue
This image of a woman in the high seas pleading for the rescue of her baby appeared in an American gift book in 1835 and was based on a painting by a British artist. The image was one of a pair, with the second being titled (happily), They’re Saved! They’re Saved! Both images were reproduced repeatedly in America through the century with a large engraving being issued in 1855 and this lithograph by Currier and Ives sometime after their move to 152 Nassau Street in 1857.
