  2. this series of photos on the work of the blacksmith is great. It's a disappearing profession. I remember seeing it in my childhood, in the countryside, but it's like a memory brought back from another life, another world

  4. Great reflection of time gone by, that was a laborious task. Great archive you have and I'm sure a great to visit to NC back in time. If you ever have the chance to visit Southern Utah, check our Jacob Hamblin home in Santa Clara Utah, lots of buildings still preserved. They have been well cared for from the when the pioneers went west.
    Thank you for hosting, Happy Holidays!

  5. Interesting photos, Sue. I remember watching a blacksmith at work in Lancaster, PA's Amish Country. It was fascinating. Our son was young and we purchased horseshoe bookends that the blacksmith forged for him.

  19. My grandfather was a blacksmith, but sadly I was too young to see his handiwork before he retired. Great photos, and would be fun to watch.

  21. Fun, I went to one similar in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The children had fun seeing how things were made back in the day.

  22. We have a small town named Columbia in the foothills that has this very thing. It's amazing to watch them work.

  27. Wow, North Carolina indeed! You were actually there one time and saw this? Dang, I hope there are some of us out there that will NOT let the old ways go. Our children and our children's children must know of all this and how our ancestors use to live, and how they made a living. This is great to see this. Thank you so much for sharing.
