    Blanchfield Blacksmith Shop

    3260 Blanchfield Rd.

    Osgoode, Ontario

    Built in 1890, and operated by Charles Blanchfield until his death in 1937, it then passed to John Richard Blanchfield, (my grandfather - a distant cousin of Charles), and later, to his son Ernie Blanchfield, in 1939.

    Although it is not a working shop now, it filled a much-needed service of providing Horseshoes, wagon wheel hoops and repairs for many years.

    I have tried to capture some of the character of the shop in this rendering, which I completed in 1995.
