In his book 'Studies From Nature' photographer Stephen Thompson contrasts the working conditions of "the simple woodman and that of the pale factory operative.

The one...is deafened by the discordant noise of untiring machinery and at best feels himself but a unit in the vast sum of human life that forms the population of our crowded manufacturing cities. The other pursues his daily task in peaceful solitude alone with nature."
