J. & E. Stevens Company Cromwell, Connecticut - Circa 1884 The Irish reached America’s shores after the potato famine of the early 1850’s. Like all immigrants, they were seen as outsiders, and as such, became the target of racist and bigoted humor. Here, the Irish “Paddy” is satirized as a useless drunk who has lost control of his beloved pig. It would be decades before Irish people were able to assimilate into the general population.
