Chicago Rawhide now known as CR. Up through the 60's most engine seals where made from leather. They pretty much looked just like todays seals. The leather would wear a pretty deep groove in the pulley surface.

The reason for the name is Chicago was were most of the livestock was processed so that would be the largest supplier of leather.
