A rare intact survival of a well-fitted early shop with good details including a cupboard within the shop which is lined with a paper advertisement for the original owner George Alexander 'Boot and Shoe Maker'. The shop was sold in 1928 to Mr Anderson, a chiropodist, who adapted such items as a metal shoe stretcher known as the 'EUDORA II' and a bunion stretcher for use in the shop. The Anderson family ran the shoe shop until 2005.
