Shoemaker's Lasting Craft - Garnet Ghost Town, Montana

"...Rap, rap! upon the well-worn stone,
How falls the polished hammer! 
Rap, rap! the measured sound has grown 
A quick and merry clamor. 
Now shape the sole! how deftly curl 
The glassy vamp around it, 
And bless the while the bright-eyed girl 
Whose gentle fingers bound it!..."

- from Songs Of Labor - The Shoemakers 
by John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)
