Shoe-Shine Stand Built Like Merry-Go-Round (Oct, 1937)

Shoe-Shine Stand Built Like Merry-Go-Round
High-speed production methods are applied to shoe shining on an odd merry-go-round machine recently installed in a St. Louis, Mo., bootblack parlor. As indicated at the right, a customer takes one of the eight seats that face outward on the circular device, places his shoes on foot-rests, and is slowly turned around while six operators perform the separate tasks of cleaning, polishing, and buffing. At the end of one minute, the customer’s shoes are neatly polished.
