Images of People at Work

I’ve created this section of the Free Vintage Art images of people to group together those drawings and illustrations that depict people working. It seemed like they should be grouped separately from people images that are more portrait like, fun or advertorial.

We started this category with a series of old catalog images showing how to hang wallpaper. As this site grows, so too hopefully will this category to include people doing all sorts of interesting things.
