Wood's shop probably was a small one, even by Maine standards.

He most likely worked alone or with a young assistant or apprentice, and used older-style hand-powered equipment.

He operated the shop until the late 1870s, when he moved to Skowhegan and began a printing shop there.

At left, Dr. B. F. Lancaster, a surgeon, announces the opening of his office in Wiscasset on March 29, 1871.
