When the gasoline engine replaced the horse and buggy on the streets and work horse in the fields, Blacksmith Fred Seeger of 305 Pauline Blvd. turned his efforts and skill to welding. Here he is shown concentrating on two steel plates which have been joined with molten iron, using his acetylene equipment. Seeger was employed by John Volz at his blacksmith and welding shop from 1925 to 1939 when he moved into his own store. Seeger was born in Wuerttemberg province, Germany.

Blacksmithing is largely a lost art in this modern day and age, but Fred Seeger of 305 Pauline Blvd. still shoes a horse occasionally. Shown above he is working on a Golfside Stable horse which has come in for a "fitting." Seeger has been blacksmithing for 30 years having come to this country from Germany in 1924. He now spends most of his time welding at his shop at 109 S. Ashley St.
