I have dual drum brakes and have experienced noise, i.e. loud squeals, with the brake shoes. Is there a
way to check for wear on the shoes, without a major disassembly?

My /7 rear brake hub has some slits around the edges but I'm not sure what they're for...inspection, air exchange...
Simplest thing to do is to remove the rear wheel and give it an inspection. You should be able to measure the thickness of the shoes, see how the braking surface is wearing.
