Blacksmith 1851 by Anne van Alkemade

Photographic Prints

Small (8.0" x 10.7")

Available to buy on…

You’re riding along the muddy road to Ballarat and your horse has thrown a shoe. The blacksmith on the corner is open for business, you can see smoke coming from the chimney of his forge next door to the cottage. It all looks very inviting.
The Blacksmith Cottage and Forge are features of the main street of Bacchus Marsh. It’s open most weekends – with the new wheelwright shed at the rear officially opened today (20/05/07). A rather nice piece of local history lovingly maintained by local volunteers.

    Oh wonderful!! It actually looks inviting. Almost so much that I’d be hoping my horse threw a shoe just so I would have to stop :) I’ll have to make sure to go and visit when I get back to Vic :) :)

    I love the cosy feel of this. So traditionally Australian.
