Spring Grove and where the railway crossing was. We used to play around with some of the railway wagons, pushing them around and riding on them. Also I had to bring a young girl to school and walked down the railway as shortcut to school but we often were picked up by the crew on a jigger who gave us a ride here to the station

Currin’s Whale Oil Paste

*

The can of Whale Paste for logger’s boots was donated to the Museum by Clyde Curry.

Currin’s Whale Oil Paste

In 1898 the Alaska Gold Rush drove demand for sturdy boots. By 1908, Hugh Currin and Warren Green opened the Currin-Greene Shoe Manufacturing Company in Seattle, specializing in work shoes for miners, stevedores, loggers and sportsmen. Working in the woods, especially in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, meant boots needed greasing to break shoes in, and prevent absorption of moisture and cracking. Whale or “train” oil–as opposed to sperm oil from sperm whales–was used to make a variety of products from lubricants to margarine, including grease for boots.
