HOOD & HADLEY PATTERN SHOP. 1903.

Cabinet Card. This photograph and next 6 are all of the Hood & Hadley Pattern Shop. Unfortunately I don't know where they were located. I was fortunate in that the seller choose to offer them as a lot. A rare series of views of a turn of the 20th Century Pattern Shop

HOOD & HADLEY PATTERN SHOP. 1903.

Cabinet Card. clear view of the pattern shop machinery room. There is a large bandsaw, a pedestal grinder and some machines of unknown purpose in the background. The wide open spaces are, in my estimate, a requirement for a patternshop that produces work of this size.

Pattern Shop. c1890.

Cabinet card. There is an incredible wealth of detail in this one card. At some point in time the photograph was remounted on plain card stock, making it a little difficult to pinpoint the date. Judging by the electrical wiring and the bicycle, my guess is c1890. There is what might be a water wheel in the rear of the shop that drives a massive belt from which all the machines are powered. I can't quite figure out what it is at this point.

Two forms are labeled 36" Cyl Head. That would indicate that this shop was turning out parts for steam engines. Along with the knob wiring, you can see racks of clamps, workbenches, numerous metal and wooden planes, including an early Stanley #113 side wheel circular plane. The various metal bench planes appear to lack a lateral lever.
