Staff of Timpsons, Inverness

Two shoemakers are seen here busy at work. They were employed by William Timpson Ltd, 48 High Street, Inverness. In the past, everyone's shoes were made by hand out of leather. Shoes and boots were very expensive, so children often did not have any and went everywhere, inside and outside, in bare feet.
