Virginia RR Hay-Budden Yard Art

Large Hay-Budden anvil in flower garden

Hay-Budden Anvil

Photos from Peter Buchanan, Bedford Co. Virginia.

One man's treasure is another man's retired tool . . . or yard art. This huge, roughly 500 pounds or larger Hay-Budden was photographed in a flower garden in Bedford County Virginia.

Unlike many yard art anvils this one has been kept painted and shows no rust texture on the face. But what is with the mess of weld beads on the side? Botched repairs? Someone practicing welding? Mysteries to make a good story. . .

End view and side markings.
Markings on the anvil include "B U D" from Hay-Budden and an inventory number "035" from the plant that owned it.
