    Love these shots. Mr. BFR loves old tools, I’ll have to show him these.

    Thank you, Beth. This museum was a great experience so I enjoy revisiting it every week.

    Dorte – I just love that workshop! You can just see the care attention to the craftsmanship coming through. I think you captured the atmosphere quite well!

    This is interesting – I like all the cobbler’s gear in the lower photo. That’s becoming a lost art.

    Dorte: I am feeling old when a chain saw is an old tool.

    I must show these to my husband. My father-in-law was the first McCulloch chain saw dealer in Maine. Dave and his dad used to go up into the deep woods of Maine and New Hampshire when Dave was a boy and they would find woodchoppers to sell saws to. As you can imagine, the woodchoppers were a bunch of very funny characters with lots of stories to tell.

    They are charming, these tools, aren´t they?

    Bill: I am sure it is a first-generation chain saw 😉
    Barbara: yes, I bet their humour was first rate.
