San Lorenzo Tannery employees used sharp knives to "hand flesh" or separate the flesh from the hides. The San Lorenzo Tannery began its relationship with Kullman-Salz in the 1880's. It was later sold to Kullman-Salz in 1917. It closed in 1929 due to the depressed national economy. It reopened on October 1, 1929 as the A.K. Salz Tannery after Ansley Kullman Salz invested his own funds.
