General Note:
NOTE: this is not the Old Blacksmith Shop on the Judson Property (as noted on the card). The foundations of this masonry structure were uncovered by Restoration Commission archaeologist Robert Steinbach during a salvage archaeology excavation after the Bennett Hotel was demolished to create a temporary parking lot for the Castillo de San Marcos. Also note that this occured before A1A was re-routed to provide the current parking area at the Castillo.; This photograph ran with an article in the Florida Times Union on December 7, 1961.; Blacksmith foundations Smithy.; 426
