Wells (Canton, NY) 
A butcher 
Cabinet card 
Capitol Gallery 
Courtesy of Capitol Gallery (Spring 2007 Auction, #61) 
Outstanding cabinet card of a butcher sharpening his large knife while preparing to carve a large slice of beef. A hacksaw is attached to the table for the more difficult cuts. Dressed in a heavy coat with wool cuffs, he wears his apron to prevent his clothes from being bloodstained. To illustrate the unsanitary conditions of the time some remnants at the back of the saw blade are noticeable.
