From England, Charles Parsons came to America at age nine and grew up in New York City where he became a noted lithographer, having apprenticed to George Endicott in 1833.  From 1854 to 1862, he produced most of Endicatt's marine lithographs and also thirty for Currier and Ives. In 1863, he became the head art director for Harper's and held that position until 1889, when he retired.
