Woman's latchet-tie pump

This ladies pump was recovered from the Guion property in the settlement of the Fortress of Louisbourg. The archaeological context is securely dated to between 1713 (the founding year of the settlement) and 1724, which tells us that the shoe was discarded sometime during that period.
