THE BLACKSMITH SHOP: THREE MEN LET THE HORSE OUT OF THE BARN

blksmth_0002

Two blacksmiths and a well dressed man and his horse pose at the doorway of a blacksmith shop or stable. Stenciled on the door next to where the blacksmiths are standing, is the word “GRAPE”. One has to wonder whether “Grape” is the name of the horse. The photograph was purchased in the town of Brocton, New York. However, it is unknown whether this image was photographed in the Brocton area.  The photograph measures 6″ x  6 3/4″.    This is a terrific photograph of days gone by.    SOLD

A MYSTERIOUS MAN ARRIVES IN TOWN DRIVING A HORSE AND BUGGY

A well dressed man arrives in town driving a horse drawn buggy. He arrives at his destination under the cover of darkness. The man is holding a long whip. There is a lamp on the carriage that is in place next to the driver. This photograph appears to have been taken outside. The horse is standing next to a brick building. Perhaps the building is a stable. There are three men visible in the background of this picture. Why are these men included in this image? Perhaps a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor has a theory they are willing to  share in regard to interpreting this photograph. The photographer and location of this image is unknown.
