1830 Period Shovel
« on: May 04, 2023, 10:12:00 PM »
 This may be unusual to ask about.   I want a period correct shovel to keep by my water bucket for fire protection in a rendezvous camp.   I would appreciate any picture, sketch or information about such a shovel.  Thank you!
If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.

Check out pages 266 and 268 for these tools in the book:  "Collector's Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution" by George Neumann & Frank J. Kravic; 1975 by Rebel
Publishing, Texarkana. My copy is soft bound, but hard bound issues may exist. As the title suggests, the pieces shown likely date to the late 1700s, but that should not be an impediment to your needs. Things changed a bit slower in those days and the style would have been close if not the same, by the 1830s. Hope this helps some.
