Left Behind #5

Blade Shears
Garnet, Montana

Household items are not the only articles left behind in a ghost town. These large scissors called blade shears were used to remove the wool from sheep. They are quite large and would take lots of hand strength to squeeze them. These and other tools are found in the general store.
