SHEA-OAK LOG FOUNDRY – c1900
THE humble blacksmith shop of C. J. Giersch stood at the crossroads corner on the Sturt Highway. The property
was purchased in 1905 by Wilhelm Ahrens for £100 as the first tentative expansion move by a family business
that has grown into the present Ahrens Engineering company. Since moving its headquarters down the road to
Kingsford in recent years, the large complex of workshop buildings are now shared by Booth Transport.
