Narrative: This boot Jack was a useful addition to a home. It enabled a person with large(muddy) boots to relieve the owner of them, before he attempted to walk across a kitchen floor. Boots were usually left outside by the boot jack. This boot jack came from the home of Dannie MacAskill, Middle Ridge, Cape North, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
History of Use: Handmade and used to remove boots by placing the heel of the boot in the semi-circle and then exerting pressure to free your foot from the boot.
