The only image of it's kind that I have come across, this is a small cabinet card size photograph of a glass engraver at his work station. Unknown company or locality. A fascinating period image of a little researched profession.

PHOTOGRAPH: CABINET CARD
ATKINS SAW COMPANY WINDOW DISPLAY.
Every now and then something comes your way that makes the collector lights go haywire. Somewhere, somewhen, someone took this picture of an Atkins window display. It appears that all the major product lines are included here, from handsaws, to circular saws to saw sharpening & setting equipment, even the tools of the saw doctor.
This cabinet card features an absolutely great cardboard cutout of an Atkins Sawyer at work. It's true what they say... They don't make them like they used to!
