Plot, Setting, & Characterization
When the brothers decided to share the house no matter who their father chose to give it to. The father was a very wealthy man and it ran in the family and was passed down for generations.
The oldest son decided to become a blacksmith the second oldest became a barber and the third oldest became a fencing-master.
I think its around the late 1800's because of the jobs.
