I love when I see signage like this – it just gives you a sense of history. Church’s was founded in 1873 by Thomas Church. His family made handmade men’s shoes dating since 1675 and Church’s sell shoes worldwide today! In 1884 Church’s made some unusual shoes – one that was for the left foot and one that was for the right foot. It came in 6 widths and was available in different styles and colours. It won won a Gold Medal at the 1884 Crystal Palace Exhibition!
