The box cover is chromolithographed with an image of a caricatured couple in a carriage, the man with feathers in his hair and the woman with a nappy around her head. The theme of Darktown, a fictitious segregated community, was familiar to Americans of the Victorian era.
Currier & Ives, the New York-based lithography firm, produced an extensive series of Darktown prints from the late 1870s through the mid-1890s, using caricatures and coarse stereotypes to lampoon blacks who moved north after the Civil War.
