Visit To A Local Blacksmith

A visit to a time gone by. I have photographed here before yet every time I shoot it’s different.

There was no work being done. At the time of this article there is a tariff on steel. It seems steel cost more, for far less, right now so places like this are working part time.

This building is small, no it’s really small. The photographs show almost the entire width. Even with no fire, this place is hot.

    1. This is another plantation, Middleton. The land absurd to Magnolia. There is a third there also, Drayton. The original lands were deeded to a Barbados planter by King so and so in the early 1600s. Sugar cane and rice growing for the empire was the idea. It turned into all high quality rice.

      Over time the plantations were split among descendants. They were all here due to river traffic and huge marsh, swamp lands good for rice.

      Charleston was the wealth center in the US up until the civil war because of the agriculture. It was also a target during the civil war because of the enormous number of West Africa people enslaved to work the rice fields. Most all the plantations here were burned at some point during that war.
