Title

Cutters of the P.K. Co.

Description

This striking photograph captures a moment in time when cutting textile patterns was in transformation from a skilled to a semi-skilled operation. Given all of machinery at the Perry Knitting Co., perhaps there's a statement being made via the pile of "bent trimmers" in front of the workers: cutting underwear patterns required skill. We see here thirteen individuals, two of them women, looking boldly at the photographer.

On the reverse side, a date is noted and that the photograph comes courtesy of Mrs. Gordon Herring.
