"The Village Blacksmith" - Edwin Lemuel Higgins - III

The title was given by Henry L. Rand when he catalogued the photograph.

Clearly visible on Mr. Higgins’ anvil is the distinctive eagle and anchor mark that distinguishes it as a Fisher & Norris Eagle Anvil. Mark Fisher founded the company in Newport, Maine in 1843. The company later moved to New Jersey.

Mr. Higgins left hand is on the lever that controls the air coming into the fire. And a bucket of water stands nearby.
