3 EUROPEAN (?) CARPENTERS

CDV. Most likely a copy of an original image. Three carpenters posed for a CDV holding a jack plane, a square and a european style frame saw.

THE JUGGLING CARPENTER.

CDV (Duplicate). Yet another obviously plagiarized CDV, most likely from a Tintype of indeterminate date and origin. Look closely at the tools surrounding this kneeling carpenter. He has a novel way of carrying his tools.

CARPENTER HOLDING A PLANE, SAW AND SQUARE. CDV taken by W. E. George of Monette, Missouri.

Not a duplicate at all, this is the type of CDV produced by a local photographer for a proud, local carpenter.

AT THE HEIGHTS OF FASHION... CDV by Schofield Bros., Wakefield, R. I.

I think this one may become the image on my business card. Just don't have a full mouth of food when you look closely at this CDV. I wonder if I can buy a pair of those overalls somewhere in Rhode Island?

3 TIMBER FRAME HOUSE CARPENTERS. CDV.

Three house carpenters with the tools of their choice: Timber frame drill, jack plane, square, hatchet and handsaw.. Look closely at the nuts on the handsaw and see if you can guess the manufacturer.

In the interest of cross-Atlantic goodwill, here is a nice CDV of a young woodworker posing in his finery whilst holding a jack plane.

WHAT THE WELL DRESSED CARPENTER WEARS TO WORK. c1880.

Cabinet Card. . Fine posed image of two carpenters making porch and other detail work. While posed, the work benches, tools and material are all as found. It looks to me as if this is an on-site workshop for a pair of skilled house carpenters.

5 CARPENTERS OF ILL REPUTE.

Cabinet Card. . A scurvy lot if ever I saw one. Watch out for the guy in the beard. he's watching you. Of interest is the back of this cabinet card, displaying the photographer and the fact that this image is a duplicate, available for order.

CARPENTRY CREW AT THE RAILROAD STATION.

Cabinet Card. Impossible to say if they built the station or are waiting on the next train to go to work. I wonder where they store their tools on the train? This cabinet card is an example of the bad things people do to old photographs. Scratches, pencil lines, dirt all over the place, mouse teeth marks in a corner.

B. B. CHAPMAN LUMBER COMPANY AND THE WEBBER CARPENTRY SHOP.

Cabinet Card. Date the automobiles and you date the card. The winner gets the horse. Ok, so this is another one of those eye-popping finds. The whole crew complete with Nelly the Horse and those new fangled horseless carriages too. Take a close look at the different ways the workman carry their tools... formal carpenters carry boxes and slung over the shoulder open top tool trays. I even like the streetlight edging into the picture.
