The anvil drops July 22


The invitation to Gardner Hardware's 120th anniversary is compelling: "A Car, an Anvil and Gravity."

A 160-pound red anvil is the star of the daytime celebration Thursday, July 22 at 515 Washington Ave. N.

The iron block will be heaved off a buttered platform atop the four-story hardware store's roof. The anvil will flatten a car below, in the parking lot between Gardner and Cuzzy's, 507 Washington Ave. N.
