Coopering, Barrel Making. Victorian drawing of two coopers, or barrel makers, in their workshop. One man sits on a 'horse' shaping a stave with a drawing knife; the other fixes the hoops. The quality of this image, though acceptable, is not perfect, as it was scanned from an early (1858), small original. Download high quality jpeg for just £5. Perfect for framing, logos, letterheads, and greetings cards.
