Pioneer Village Cobbler Shop, Minden, Nebraska

This is an interior of one of many craft and trade buildings on the site of Pioneer Village. What appear to be shoes hanging from the shelving are in fact shoe lasts, the wooden forms used to make a shoe of a particular style and size. There appear to be a few shoes on the shelves themselves, but all the hanging items are wooden lasts.

Made by Dexter, West Nyack, N.Y.
