Inscription. The original Red Front Blacksmith Shop was located directly across the street from this mural. The workers pictured represent many local ranching families. The images in the ovals next to the buildings show scenes from Tehachapi's ranching history.

The outside ovals show working blacksmiths in their shops. All images were taken from old photographs. A few well-known, local cattle brands and the names of the ranches are shown in the box below.
