We just happen to have a little soldering business here in Lexington, but it is under roof and not outside. This fellow appears to be deep into what he is doing. I have always wanted to learn how to solder, but at 73 I am thinking I am a bit too old to start now. Nice post. genie

That's very interesting, it makes for a great photograph. I like leaning about the old ways of making and mending things, thanks! Today, many people would simply discard the broken item.

It's a very long time since I saw that being done. I was a very small child. My grandmother had a pot fixed, and it lasted for years! Fascinating photo, bringing back memories.
