What is a Moroccan Dresser?

A recent perusal of a 1917 list of residents of Lynn, MA yielded a startling number of people whose profession was listed as "Moroccan Dresser". A quick Internet search found an opinion that the person might have been someone who prepared Moroccan leather for manufacture into shoes, given the large number of shoe factories at the time in Lynn.

We are in the process of gathering questions for a North Shore trivia game. Discussions about the game have been filled with laughter and reminiscing about the old days, the many movie theaters of Lynn and the days when movie theaters gave out dishes as gifts to movie-goers. If you have some questions you'd like to contribute, please send them along, with their answers please, to sberliner@jfsns.org
