  Launder.JPG - W H LAUNDER - Length 7 in; one-piece steel stick, marked W H LAUNDER M’F’G’R on side of shaft, #29 in Wilson’s candlestick book, with NM petrified wood specimen,  ex-Dave Thorpe collection (W. H. Launder's name appears on a few crudely made candlesticks but very little was known as to who he was or where he practiced his trade.  Recently, Leo Stambaugh ran across a billhead with the W. H. Launder General Blacksmith Horseshoer label at the top with a Gregory Street, Central City, CO shop location dated June 1st, 1892.  The bill is signed as paid by W. H. Launder.  It would appear that the Launder stick is another in the line of Colorado candlesticks.  The signed bill is shown in the following pic.  See Stambaugh, Eureka #33, p 17)
