Wilfred Burkinshaw, Bath Steel Works
Now closed and apparently taken over by another company. One of several Sheffield companies to use former steam hammers converted to compressed air operation. This forge had four hammers. The man on the left is the incredibly skilled hammer driver while two other men manipulate the work piece. It is claimed that a skilled hammer driver can bring the tup down on an egg without cracking it!
