      I might be mistaken but isn`t that an American flag atop the forward mast?

      Found Russell & Richardson in a book on Google in reference to wood-cut
      I'm sleepy now and reading all this is knocking me out...lol...but I enjoy the hunt to a great mystery.
      Here is that book link

      Okay so I'm still awake
      They were active according to mfa boston 1865-1880
      Museum of Fine Arts Boston may help you
      They have wood engravings by Russell & Richardson. ...
