Playing with edged tools

Playing with edged tools

John Gordon Thomson (1841-1911)

Fun (29 March 1876): 141

“An undeserved snub for Sheffield. Mr. Fun cannot help thinking that there is much more good in one day’s honest labour than in years of superfine, often superficial, criticism. ”

“Edged tools” because Sheffield was known for its tool and cutlery industry. .
