I found this shovel yesterday at Urban Ore in Berkeley and have never seen one like it. it's about nine feet long, and has 'Wood's Big Fist Shovel' and 'June 54, Heat Treated' and the number '2' etched into it. it's extremely well-made and reinforced like crazy. i can't imagine that it was used like a dirt shovel. maybe it was for loading coal into some giant, hot boiler somewhere? anyone know?
