Q is for Quaint Blacksmith Shop............
In keeping with a stroll that we took through Strawbery Banke, I thought that this Quaint looking little Blacksmith shop would be perfect for this week's post.
Since most of the buildings on these premises were built during the early 1700's, this little shop was a necessity back during those times.
The "smithy" who owns the shops works as if it were still back in the old days. No power or modern day tools to be found here.
All that wood piled out front is used to fuel his fire for heating up the iron or steel which he will hammer and shape into just about anything - furniture, tools, cooking utensils, horse shoes, and weapons.
This Quaint little shop has such old fashioned charm.
We visited it in the autumn, but the busiest tourist time is in the summer and it must be awfully hot in that little building when the fire is roaring.
Looks like he has some tools set up outside to help with that problem though.
What amazing and beautiful creations he forges with his fire, hammer, metal, and hands.
This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
