It’s the end of my vacation and back to work, so I thought the above CdV of a fellow holding a sledge hammer would be an appropriate photo today. This man looks like he knows how to work! The CdV is on sturdy pearlized card, with a gold edge, which tells me the photo is probably from the 1880s, which is when I believe that was popular. There is no indication who the photographer is, but there is a handwritten note on the back that this is Mr Boozel or Boozu. I wonder if this was taken in one of those traveling railroad car photo studios, out in the wilds of the West when the transcontinental railroad was being built?
