    Chain Making by Hand in the English Black Country Moss, Ron
    $9.95

    "Chain Making By Hand" offers a guide to the chain making industry that flourished in an area of England to the north and west of Birmingham known as the Black Country from the end of the 18th century to the third quarter of the 20th century. The name "BLACK COUNTRY" predates the Industrial Revolution and was likely used because the surface exposed coal deposits in that area. For over a century the local skies were blackened and the soot droppings turned the entire countryside black.

    Cyril Colnik: Man of Iron Strekow, Alan J.
    $45.00

    With the conclusion of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, Cyril Colnik arrived in Milwaukee at the perfect moment. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, Milwaukee had become well known for its myriad of industries that included brewing, tanning, publishing, meat packing and machine manufacturing. A large part of Colnik's immediate success can be both literally and figuratively the result of his many German-American clients. They appreciated that Colnik already had the knowledge and talent to bring the ornate wrought iron ornament style of the Rhine to his newly adopted city. While Colnik was able to forge amazing designs in iron, he was also an excellent manager of the men whom he hired to embark on his growing commissions. He was a very sophisticated artist respected by everyone.
