PC #319: Colonial Williamsburg – USA

A historical card of a house in Colonial Williamsburg from Kati (jaenelle). The structure is the James Geddy Foundry, and here’s the very helpful caption at the back of the card:

The James Geddy Foundry. Williamsburg, Virginia. James Anderson operated a blacksmith and armorer’s shop on this site from the late 1770’s until he died in 1798. Today, his blacksmith shop, complete with hammers, anvils, and coal-fired forges has been reconstructed following extensive archaeological excavations. The smiths who work here today reproduce iron objects using technology that would have been familiar to Anderson and his workmen.

Omg, lotsa beautiful stamps. Thank you, Kati! I particularly like the Aging Together stamp. :o)
