Boot and shoe molds (lasts)

Found in attic of Clara Shepardson. Her great grandfather, David Martin Shepardson (1832-1907) and possibly her grandfather, George Shepardson (1871-1960) made boots/shoes along with market gardening. These were most likely sold to boot factory/shop in downtown Warwick. At one time 40 men were making 20,000 pair of shoes a year (many sold to slave plantations of the south).
