The 2 photos are slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into tight paper photo albums, as most were. Does not affect their actual images in any way. Their occupations are listed as "Fabricators: Working in Canvas." New Bedford is a beautiful Nautical and ship building town. A wonderful close up set of portraits from a beautiful New England historical town.
