This is a superb image of an itinerant iron worker from the late 18th century.  A great study for someone looking to do an impression of a tinker.

  1. The metal is cold and one does not typically work iron cold. There is no indication he is packing a portable forge which would require a small cart to transport. If he had a cart, he would have no need of the backpack. He is probably a whitesmith or tinsmith as tin is readily worked cold although it is often accompanied by soldering of the seams.
