GEO. MOYNAN CARRIAGE MAKING AND GENERAL BLACKSMITHING.

Cabinet Card. Interesting image of a group of carriage makers / blacksmiths holding tools of their trades. Notice that the woodworker is holding a transitional plane? Yup, they where used by the working man. There is the remains of a poster for Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West show tacked up on the barn.

Entitled: "MY GRANDFATHER".

Cabinet card size image. This is one of those rare, fully identified photos that combines a great image with detailed information. "My Grandfather; Thomas A. Miller; Expert Wagon Maker; In his shop at Jewell, Kansas. Prior to 1913; 7Th Pennsylvania Cavalry Co. E.; Everett l. Miller". From my own research: Thomas A. Miller, 7th Pennsylvania Cavalry, 80th Regiment Volunteers, Mustered 2/26/1864, General Discharge - 2/7/1865". Can anyone identify the felloe boring machine Grandfather is using?

WHEELWRIGHT SHOP. May, 1881.

Cabinet Card. Yup, that is exactly what the sign on the shop says: "Wheelwright Shop". And it's dated on the back. Nothing left to the imagination or guesswork on this one. Two images of the same group of wheelwrights.

"WILLIE". c1900.

Cabinet Card. The only annotation on this set of cabinet cards is the name 'Willie". From the looks of it, Willie was a small town, one man wheelwright shop. No fancy machinery, no patented anything. Simple user made jigs fulfilled the basic needs of a local tradesman.

CARRIAGE SHOP. c1900.

Cabinet Cards. Four views of the interior and exterior of a carriage shop. Finished products, men at rest, happy men at the anvil and two proud men with their felloe boring machine. That machine must have cost a pretty penny.
