Church’s Shoes

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 dating since 1675 and Church’s sell worldwide today! In 1884 Church’s made some unusual –  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!
