It seems somehow appropriate that these two photographs are as scratched and faded as they are, given the nature of the work being portrayed. It must have been quite an event, to pose for the photographer while daily life as a blacksmith was being recorded for posterity.

Both images were loose in the Welsh album. The man in the doorway of the second photograph reminds me of the portrait below, from the same album. Another connection, perhaps. What do you think?
