Wandering Shoe Repairer-Beacon Hill-1972.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1972

Wandering shoe repairers were still around in the early 1970s. One used to appear in front of our apartment block at Beacon Hill regularly at weekends and seemed to be kept busy.

He announced his presence with loud calls that echoed around the buildings. I cannot recall how he transported all his work gear. As we were at the top of the hill it must have been a struggle.
