Comentarios: Began his own business in Philadelphia, but also worked occasionally with Gideon Fairman, Stephen Gimber (Childs & Gimber), and one Carpenter (Childs & Carpenter, possibly J.W. Carpenter). Childs was a member of the pioneer lithographic firm of Pendleton, Kearney & Child in 1829, but the following year formed a partnership with the portrait painter Henry Inman (see entry), under the name of Childs & Inman. This association continued until 1833, when Inman left. The firm was then bought out by George Lehman and continued under the name Childs & Lehman. About this time, Childs was forced to give up much of his hands-on work as a lithographer and engraver because of injuries received during a trip to Europe in 1830-31 (athough he continued to be listed as such in the directories until 1845). His spent his later career in commercial journalism and finance.
