Can you imagine a time laps video showing the land and streets around this old shop over the years? Horse and buggys, gentlemen tipping their hats as they pass a female. People living freely and enjoying their day. Now its hooded characters walking around spitting, stupid clown cars with stereos thumping so loud your windows rattle, pregnant hispanic women pushing a stroller with her 4 kids following her. What the hell has happened to this place?

dont poop on this Vallejo institution if some azz holes pass by blasting their crap it will be drowned out by the sound of the forge and the total competence of the REAL People that have operated this
incredible shop for so many generations .. It could be made a School for Traditional Skills learning and
produce many Apprentices each year .. These Skills
need to be preserved , otherwise they will be lost
forever .. Cmon Vallejo save Our Assets , while one cant eat History , one can learn a whole lot from it
