I got this from my Aunt Donna today. It has been sitting in her garage for over 30 years. It came with the house that my Grandpa and Grandma bought and she bought from them. I have no idea on how old it is.
I thought that it was a library card catalog but now I don't think so. The tags on the boxes say "Wisconsin Rapids, Whitehall and White Lake" Then those boxes are broken down alphabetically.
All the boxes were filled with junk or treasures. ( Depends on how you look at it) I say junk, as it was old tools,pipes, nails, chains and all kinds of (to me) junk. I was going to take it to the dump but I went to my friend Kellie's house as her husband is a mechanic and he might see value in it. He did. I'm glad that somebody will be able to use it.
Oh, there were a few mice traps in there. Also on the lower right hand side you see that light brown
pile that looks like hair? That's not hair. That's Oakum. Read all about oakum and amaze and astound your friends with useless knowledge!
I plan on cleaning it up and making it look all spiffy. Put it in a corner,put a plant on top and call it good. Maybe come summer I will strip it and sand it and varnish it. ( Maybe, that does sound like too much work for me)
