Two men have posed for a tintype studio portrait wearing hats and aprons, smoking pipes and holding saws. In this era of photography portraiture it was common for subjects to pose with implements that denoted their occupation. These men appear to be carpenters. A label adhered to the verso reads "Bingham."
