AN OLD WEAVER SITTING AT HIS LOOM SMOKING A PIPE (OCCUPATIONAL CABINET CARD)

weaver

This is a fascinating occupational cabinet card featuring on old weaver sitting at his loom. He is smoking a pipe as he poses for a photograph from an unidentified photographer. The location that this photograph was taken is unknown. I wish I knew more about weaving so I could explain a bit more about the occupational component of this image. All I know is that weaving on a loom looks extremely complicated and requires excellent coordination between the weaver’s hands, eyes, and feet.

  1. Do you own these cabinet cards?

    • Yes, I do own all the cabinet cards and other images that I display in the Cabinet Card Gallery. However, I do sell some of the photographs from time to time. Otherwise, I could never fund adding photographs to this blog.

  2. I look forward to seeing them and reading about them.
