Squint Shot 041012
As I had the opportunity to look over the memoriabilia offered for photography by a local resident, it was fun to check out the pail shown above. There may have been a variety of sizes given out by the hardware store, as this one seemed a little smaller than the one displayed last summer.
If you search on Sidell, you can find a number of posts regarding the hardware store as well as the fur trading post they had in the northeast block. A couple of years ago, the old wooden building behind the storefronts on East Grand River was torn down and I kept a running progress of the demolition. During that demolition, a fur-stripping implement was found, which is now in the historical collection.
