Caption: Ironworking forge machinery. The machinery shown here is a tilt hammer, with the hammer head at left. The iron cam ring is at centre, behind the large gear, with the wooden hammer beam extending beyond it. This is Hay Creek Forge, Hay Creek, Berks County, Pennsylvania, USA, built around 1740. It made wrought iron wagon tyres and scythe blades. Horseshoes are in the foreground. Dating from 1932, this photograph is from the Albert T. Keller collection of the American Iron and Steel Institute. The collection consists of historical photographs of the iron and steel industry.
