Wheeled herring cart, Lubec, ca. 1970
MMN Item 27716 Zoom


The only intact herring cart present when Lubec Landmarks acquired McCurdy's in 1995.

This innovation of the 70s was used to move the filled herring sticks from the Pickling Shed, out onto the wharf to drain and dry somewhat, and into the smokehouses.

At the end of the smoking, they were used to move the "handed down" sticks into the Skinning Shed.
