Captions of the Past

Life as a tradesman way back when



"Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language"
- Walt Disney


"A picture is worth a thousand words" so the saying goes, but If only pictures can speak and tell the tale of what it really captured.  For years I've been collecting old pictures of tradesman at work either in action or for the pose. It's worth while to admire each photo individually for they are unique in there own ways. Here is a compilation of the best pictures in my collection. I don't have a caption for any, so the caption that goes with each picture is the one you make up. These pictures are from around the world. Feel free to share far and wide. Enjoy and be captivated!
