Product Information
Specification

Just as the individual cobbler can no longer compete with shoe factories in the manufacture of shoes so the individual harness-maker can no longer compete with the factories in the manufacture of harnesses. The shoemaker, so-called, is not a shoemaker at all, he is a shoe mender and spends all of his time doing mending only. So the harness-maker, so-called, does repairing of harnesses only. With the increasing use of power machinery and the decreasing use of horsepower the harness repair men are rapidly decreasing in number. It thus more and more becomes the work of the farmer to repair his own harnesses.

Originally published in the 1920s, the Harness Repairing Lessons are not apt to be of interest or great value to harness-makers. They are not intended for them. They are merely a brief series of repair jobs so illustrated and described that a farmer or farm boy can do the more ordinary repair jobs as they occur or at a suitable time.
