 Makers of Boot Jacks


In 1883, there were 18 men in Logansport who could make footwear of excellent quality and appearance; some of these had employees; that is, they ran more than a one man shop.  In the downtown section, there were Charles Horning, John Winsch, Elias Winter, Henry Wren, John Gotseling and William Engelbrecht, to mention only a few.  Each of these had a stock of various size, over which he shaped the shoes ordered by his customer.
