I'm not in Facebook, but I followed the instructions and found this quote: Edwin Klockars Blacksmithing is the last industrial blacksmith shop left in San Francisco," from The San Francisco Labor Landmarks Guide Book:A Register of Sites and Walking Toursa, edited by Susan P. Sherwood and Catharine Powell.

It was the closest one with enough pages next to me on the ref desk.

I used to walk past that shop everyday the year and a half I worked at what was then the Union Oil Company building -- this was back in 1969 and 1970.
