[Sca-cooks] pickling

Curiously about the wooden pickling vats, I actually remember seeing some 
around 1970 in Wiggins, MS.  There was an old, still operating pickle 
factory there.  The vats as I remember them were about five feet high and 
seven feet in diameter built like barrels.  They were old then and looked 
it.  The factory couldn't compete with newer facilities and went out of 
business later in the '70s.  The wood was salvaged from the factory and 
showed up on This Old House in the mid-80s.
