The American Blacksmith

The Industrial Blacksmith

Two Blacksmiths
Old Time Industrial Blacksmiths
Notice the two blacksmiths, one handled the metal, the other swung the sledgehammer, the large boiler, the little single cylinder steam engine behind the sledge-man in black, the leather belts, the wheels/pulleys, forced air blower near the top of the forge, and even the sheet of iron to keep the fire in shadow so the smith could better tell the exact color of the metal as he worked it.
