Wasn't sure what category to put this in. It's a picture of the inside of the blacksmith shop at Hudson Bay, a national monument recreation over at Fort Vancouver. This was a working exhibit. The forge at the other end was in use as a demonstration and the room was filled with sulfer and smoke. While it's crowded with tools to showcase what they would have used, it was still a great room. If you look in the upper right, you'll see the giant bellows used to stoke the fire.

It's lovely! I hope you don't mind, but I used a (somewhat modified) version of this image as an illustration for a blog article: [link]

Please let me know if that's not okay with you and I'll be happy to take it down.

While it's not technically stock, it's fine with me. You credited appropriately, and heck, there's a story, so....I'm good with it. :)

I think it was in Spring, 2008. The picture says March and it gets the info from the picture itself, so I'd believe it.

A smithy that isn't crowded isn't a smithy ;) We're always accumulating stuff.
