Wood Engraved Doodles

I’d forgotten to put up a shot of the reverse of the Lincoln block, where the artist has doodled and practiced his technique. I got rid of most of the grunge on the surface, and you can see some interesting things, like the name “Geo. H. Weagant” which corresponds to the lead block in the collection for “Weagant’s Pure Copper Amalgam”. Weagant was a Cornwall dentist.

Also note the shadowy image of a man or boy on the right side of the block.

I’ve flipped the image in Photoshop so that it reads right.
