Advert For B. & H.Cohen, Mechanical Tools
Medium: Print on paper
This leaflet is advertising B & H Cohen, dealers in new and second hand mechanical tools. The 1800s was a century of technological progression and the growth in scientific knowledge at this time had a major impact on the way people thought about the world and the way they lived their lives. Britain was known as ‘The workshop of the world’ and great importance was given to new machinery both in industry and in the home. New skills were necessary to maintain these machines and so skilled manual workers were very important. A wide variety of tools could be purchased at this store in Waterloo Road such as planes, sets, ploughs, chisels and saws.
