Wooden stretcher in the form of a man. Indiana. Early 20th century. Almost the height of a 6' man, this innovative wood form was possibly used for drying a single change of mens clothes. It is constructed of two halves joined front and back with wood cleats. The form stands 5'3" from ankle to neck. It measures 19 1/2" across the chest and hips. This stretcher was very likely used for "Elmer" as his name is penciled on one side.
