As a child, I remember going to the town cobbler for shoe repairs often. Today we just buy more. A throw away society is what we are. When I was working up a story on the specialty shops here, this was one of the stops.

    Cool find and photo! My great uncle had a shoe shop in my home town when i was a kid. I LOVED the smell of the leather and the polish. A nice memory.

    Can't find a good cobbler today. Good symbol of a once frugal society.

    I had a grandfather that was a cobbler. When our son was little we had his cowboy boots repaired several times before he outgrew them. Now when I have taken a pair of shoes in to be repaired they tell me that they cannot repair them! Love the neon sign: )
