Blacksmith Shop

In the blacksmith shop, two blacksmiths are at work hammering a piece of metal on the anvil while three men watch

At the blacksmith shop, blacksmiths sharpened plowshares, replaced horseshoes, repaired wheels and shaped iron into tools and replacement parts. Metal was heated in a forge, where bellows forced air through the fire to heat the iron. Tongs were used to hold each malleable, red hot item on the anvil while the blacksmith hammered it into the desired shape with his sledge. It was then plunged into a nearby tank of water to harden it.
