Squint Shot 012411

Yesterday's squint shots showed a piece of antiquated equipment found in the building dismantled in September, 2010, which used to stand behind the old Butler Gun Shop. It was used for skinning animals in order for the furs to be sold.

Before the building was entirely torn down, the following pulley was retrieved and is now stored in the Fowlerville Historical Collection in the village offices. The wheel is large, at least six inches in diameter. So . . . was this used to pulley up and hang some of the animals before the skinning was taken care of?
