What it is: 

Photo mounted to cardboard.  Trimmed to approximately 3 x 3.5 inches.


What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.



These appear to be men at work, though I’m not sure what they do for a living.  The man on the right seems to have some sort of wrench in his hand.  Combined with the big wheel he’s leaning on, should we guess that he is a wheelwright, or perhaps somebody who works on carriages and other vehicles?  Or is the big wheel merely ornamental?  I can’t tell what tool the guy in the middle is holding.   I initially thought they were standing in front of a half-closed door, but after enlarging it, I now think they are standing at an open garage in front of some large vehicle that I don’t recognize.  There appears to be a seat above the shorter man’s head.  Wherever they are, that’s a pretty window.  And the bit of the sign I can read says “Always on hand”, which is comforting.

  1. The men look to be wheelwrights and the subject behind them looks to be a commercial wagon (ice, milk,?)
