These colorful cards of well-known warships, steamers, and yachts were intended to be collected and arranged in photograph-style albums and viewed in the parlor or nursery. Louis Prang of Boston was a major producer of similar cards, issuing sets of flowers, adorable children, pets, urban views, and sea shells. Although this set is without imprint, it could well be a Prang production as it features several ships that berthed in Boston.
