This photograph of masons from J.C. Sargent Co. in Gardner, Massachusetts, was included in a purchase made by the Society of a portion of the firm’s archives.  The company specialized in cemetery monuments but also did pedestals and curb work.  An advertisement confidently stated: “Every piece of work warranted, and disappointment will not be possible.”  Looking at the determined faces and capable hands of the carvers and cutters holding their tools, the claim is quite believable.

Adopted by Nancy Osgood in honor of Jane Dewey
