Complete blacksmith setup in back room of Wagon Shop. Door at left of bicycle is in the location of the current door to the back room. Photo shows (l. to r.) the bicucle, bicycle-operated air pump, converted kitchen stove hearth, and converted kitchen sink quencher. This photo shows the pipe (at upper edge) above the hearth, but no connecting hardware. This might have been a temporary condition...as shown here, smoke would probably fill the back room.
