je pense que maintenant les cordonniers travaillent avec des machines plus fraiches ;o) digne de faire parti d'une collection d'un musée
I love displays like this - relics of craftsmanship and artistry that's quickly vanishing - at least here in America. Thanks!
It is hard to find an old fashioned cobbler these days. Count yourself most fortunate.
Omigod! Look at that machine. I'll bet that's just for show, right?Heck, I doubt if there's any kind of cobbler left in Ocala (well, except for the ones that shoe horses!)
I think any type of old machinery is *very* cool. There are so few cobblers anymore, a dying art.
I love this shot. What a great composition. I didn't know singer made 'shoe' machines : )
Mais peut-il chanter?
Great window display! This is not a profession you see much of in Tucson.
An ols Singer--very collectable.Ciel--I bet you would make a good Cowgirl. It's never too late. YeeHaw!!! MB
Charme retro..Je suis sure que la machine pourrait encore marcher, même si le cordonnier ne s'en sert plus; Par temps de crise ce métier réapparait, on ne jette plus , on répare, ..pas plus mal!...
What a nice find. We still have few remaining cobblers, but strangely most of the are women now.
Here in Manila you can still get custom-made shoes... although they are often quite a bit more than off-the shelf ones. That's still good for someone like my mother who needed a special pair with different insoles made after her hip surgery when one leg became shorter than another. Lovely display, Ciel.
wow a vintage Singer! Amazing!I also like a lot those reflections.hugsLéia
My great Grand ma, my grand ma and my mum all had manual singer sewing machine. They were the best.
Just as an aside, I once knew a Singer. A descendant of "The" Singer.
I can almost smell the leather and polish from my youth. But here cobblers are no more. A loss for sure.
Not only are cobblers a dying craft, sewing machines are very much on the wane, as well...Neat photo, Ciel
An interesting display. I love the old Singer sewing machine.
a wonderful image. thank you for your caring words.
The old people really knew how to make shoes!
Wow a cobbler - how interesting. They're a dying breed these days.
First: Why did I think of the film "Coco"....Second thought; Not many cobblers left here either...Interesting to see...Have a nice weekend!:)
I LOVE the old machine and randomly placed shoes. Cool shot.
J´adore!Ma maman en avait une :)Merci pour le souvenirBisous
Excellent shot, Ciel! You composed this brilliantly.Sharon
The window of a true craftsman, a rare thing in these days when everything is designed to be thrown away after a short time!
I love this photo and the old sewing machine.
Les traditions des vieux métier des souvenir d'enfance merci pour cette évocation.
