Blacksmith Shop



We wrap up Blacksmith Week today with this picture of an old Blacksmith Shack. It is a reminder of a quieter and simpler time that is long gone. The picture was taken in 1935 in North Carolina.

  1. Interesting, even back in those times they advertised their prices.
    On the side of the shack it says HORSE SHOEING, then under that, in chalk it says 1.25. With the $ being in paint.
    So it looks like if something big was going on in town (like a hanging) he could change his prices in a mattern of seconds, not that he would though.

  2. "Simpler & quieter" are two very attractive words.
    I bet he enjoyed his work and had a lot less headaches then most today.
    I enjoyed "Blacksmith Week", thanks.

  3. It looks like he should have up a GONE FISHING sign, as closed up as it is.

  6. Reminds me of the begining of the Andy Grifith show. Andy and Opie walking along a wooded path to the ole fishin hole. Everyone can whistle that theme song.
