Mrs. Longfield

When my son Gil was in high school he used to do the welding of a little piece of the lamps that Mrs. Longfield made. That was the only part of the lamp she could not do herself. She forged those lamps after her husband passed away. There was a shed in the back where they made the lamps, and they had a beautiful display in the little shop next to their house. The Longfields were well known for their wrought iron work. When she passed, her son Eugene continued to make them. So you can still get a lamp made by a Longfield! 

Based on an oral history interview with Nancy Arruda Oliveira.
