Hi All,

I visited the Pioneer Village Living History Village in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago and found it very interesting.
All the buildings are authentic 1800's buildings that were saved from demolition in their original location
and brought to Phoenix and re-assembled at Pioneer Village.

Here's a pano taken in the Blacksmith Shop.

Hello Rob,

That's a fine pano, it reflects the craftmanship of old times.
It remembers me of the workshop of my father who was also a blacksmith a long time ago, the fire was hot, the metal glowing and he was sweating when hammering the iron, shaping it into the form he wanted.
In fact that is the same as we do, we shape our panos in the form we want, with much less force but with the same passion.
So a big "hoera" for all blacksmiths and panographers :-)
