Vintage Photos of the Hands of Workers and Artisans

created at: 06/20/2012

Whenever I go out of town, I'm always surprised by how different my hands feel and look after a few days off my normal schedule. I am by no means a manual laborer, but with all the cutting, woodworking, painting, cooking, instrument playing, bike riding, and other things to which I put my hands, there's always a cut, a callous, a scar, an abrasion, or non-human-skin-like coloring.
