Blists Hill Victorian Town - it ain't half hot mum!
Blists Hill Victorian Town - it ain't half hot mum!
While one worker cools his hot tool in the water trough, the other is wheeling the hot wrought iron to the rolling mill. The chalked word 'HOT' seems a little superfluous (although perhaps not when the plant is taking quite some time to cool down).

This is a gas fired reverberatory furnace used to heat the wrought iron prior to rolling or working under the steam hammer. It originally raised steam in a waste heat boiler but this is no longer in use.
