A group of four anonymous painters in tintypes. Known as "Occupationals" they depict working men and women, usually in work garb and frequently with the tools of their trade in hand.

This group all appear in the book "The Painted Backdrop: Behind the Sitter in American Tintype Photography 1860 - 1920" by Jim Linderman
