Abstract/ Summary

According to one source, nearly one out of every ten prints published by Currier and Ives had the trotting horse as its subject. The so-called "Golden Age of Trotting" in America, from 1840 to 1895, corresponded with the time that the prints of Currier and Ives were most popular. This article provides a brief description of some Currier and Ives trotters with a connection to Maine, including Mac, Tacony and Zachary Taylor, Pelham, Daniel D. Tompkins and Blanc Negre, Trustee, Stella, Flora Temple, Hopeful, Lady Maud, Camors, Smuggler, Emma B, Jay-Eye-See, Pallas, Kremlin, and Nelson.
