Item S9 -  George H. Bishop Pruning Saw. 

I can’t find the number of this “different” pruning saw, but Bishop did make a number of models of them.  This one is noteworthy for its short, fairly deep shape with a vertical wooden handle, fixed to the back of the steel frame with slotted saw screws.  The edge length of the 1” wide blade is 14 ½ inches, while the total length of the saw is only 16 ½ inches.  In addition to the Bishop name and Lawrenceburg, Indiana location, the frame is also stamped, U.S.Q.M.C.”  This is for the “United States Quarter Master Corps”, and suggests that this saw was directed to Military purposes, most likely during WWI.  The time fits: Bishop was in Lawrenceburg from about 1899 to 1920.  It is in Fine condition.
