|Rushden Echo, 1st July 1955, transcribed by Jim Hollis
Part of the ‘Spotlight on Rushden’ series
The village smithy is still there
Busy industrial town though it is, Rushden has many marks of the village which it was.
Close to the Hall is still to be found the smithy, and though heavy lorries rumble by outside, horses still come to be shod as they did in the coaching days, and there is a brisk demand for agricultural work. Mrs M A Ginns carries the business on, and in this picture Jimmy Guinee is busy on a shoeing job.
