This frosty scene illustrates one of the most popular themes of Currier & Ives prints, winter in New England. Winter Morning, with its bright sunlight and strong shadows idealizes a typical snowy day on a rural, country farm. The animals eat their breakfast behind a split-railed fence and look on as a man drives a sleigh up a snowy road toward the large farm house.
