He kept careful watch of the technique he used for his prints, noting the temperature of the room, the age of the bath that his plates were soaked in, the composition, and the length of time the plate was etched. When making prints of the etchings Marsh recorded how long the paper soaked for, the heating of the plate, and the nature of the ink used. Marsh enjoyed experimentation with all his artworks and was therefore renowned for his unique techniques.

Such entertainments flourished throughout the country and were available all over New York City.

Burlesque was "the theater of the common man; it expressed the humor, and fantasies of the poor, the old, and the ill-favored.

Nonetheless, the lower class members of society were his preferred subject matter, as he contended that "well bred people are no fun to paint". The print's title mocks a complacent remark made by President Hoover. Marsh liked to venture out to Coney Island to paint, especially in the summer time. There he began to paint massed beached bodies.
