Thread Name: BS: Fish
Subject: RE: BS: Fish
Dried fish from the east coast was provided free to those in the praries during the 3o's deression.   

What I also read once was that because shoes were so worn, that they used dry cod skins to line tattered shoes.. to keep thier feet warm so they wouldn't freeze in the winter.
