HOOD & HADLEY PATTERN SHOP. 1903.
Cabinet Card. These are all of the Hood & Hadley Pattern Shop. Unfortunately I don't know where they were located. I was fortunate in that the seller choose to offer them as a lot. A rare series of views of a turn of the 20th Century Pattern Shop
Cyanotype print. "Member of the firm of Hood & Hadley. On and off duty." Two prints on a very acidic piece of backing. A good case for the digital preservation of images.
Cyanotype print. "Pattern of Bevel Gear and Pinion. Made by Hood & Hadley for the American Electrical Works, Philadelphia, .. Constructing time - 164 hours. Lumber used - 45 ft. Pine, 8 ft. cherry."
Cabinet Card. "The pattern of this cylinder was made by Hood & Hadley for the Wm. A. Harris Steam Engine Co. Started April 23, 1903. Complete May 25."
Cabinet Card. clear view of the pattern shop machinery room. There is a large bandsaw, a pedestal grinder and some machines of unknown purpose in the background. The wide open spaces are, in my estimate, a requirement for a patternshop that produces work of this size.
