Thread Name: Clementine's shoe size?
Subject: RE: Clemantine's shoe size?
Norway shipped iced herring in 100 kg boxes (about 222 pounds) in the 1920s (and, I believe, back to the 1880s). The boxes replaced the casks. See picture at: Herring boxes

See record (scroll down to) of a Canadian herring box machine and herring boxes (date 1871) at: Box records
Don't argue with Bill Kennedy. He is a knowledgeable man!
