Photograph of two monks working in the blacksmith shop at Mission Santa Barbara, ca.1900. They are both wearing the traditional Franciscan habit. One, at left, holds a small item just pulled from the forge (at back) with long tongs on an anvil. He holds a hammer in his other hand. The other brother holds a large sledge hammer over his shoulder facing the first brother. Sundry blacksmith paraphernalia is visible in the wooden shop around them.
