It is somewhat difficult to imagine the need for and reliance on the blacksmith by the rural community of 200 years past. The smith combined the work of the welding shop, the service station, and the hardware store in one man. Every community, however small, had need of one, and as a result there were greater numbers of smiths than of any other craftsmen during the 18th and 19th cent. This is the catalog of a special exhibition showing tools and implements collected by Henry and George Landis late in the 19th century. They gave a priority to the tools and products of early craftsmen, especially the blacksmith. The catalog includes an introduction to the work and importance of blacksmiths. Includes over 100 photos.
