Blacksmiths and Tinsmiths in Demand

Tinsmiths provided general iron and plumbing materials along with such things as lamps, chandeliers and kerosene burners. On the West Coast a large part of thier business was manufacturing pipes and fluming for mining companies.
Blacksmiths did all types if ironwork and were in demand because of the importance of horses, which needed to be shod regularly, for transport. Blacksmiths heated iron in a fire (maintained by large bellows) until it was white hot and then shaped it on a large anvil.
