    Oh, goodness! Many years ago, I bought what was called a shoe drying rack. I didn’t know what specific function it served, assuming it was used for after leather was dyed. ?? Watching this video, now I think it’s used to allow the glue to cure. I don’t know much about my rack except it’s old. The former owner thought perhaps it’s over 100 years old!
