Every now and then I take the time to look back through some of the photographs in my collection. It's hard enough finding early images in good shape, let alone those that feature trades and industries. My particular interest is wood, although leather workers creep in there too. Here and there I can turn up an image of a tradesman and the toolchest that held the tools of his trade. Ok, so that last sentence was a bit repetitive.
I thought I would revisit a few images that normally live over at The Toolemera Press website (cheap advertising at it's best). Here are a few that I particularly like. Some cabinet cards, an ambrotypes, a Carte de Visite, a cyanotype..
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do
