Boot repair shop. Location unknown, but could be near the railway as there is a tank in the background. Somewhere around Waltham / Opawa, 1920s.

    I think the boot shop is in Lincoln Road near the Black Horse Hotel. The tank in the background is a large domestic type around the 1920s.

      Hi Stuwill. Thank you for your contribution. We have taken a look on Google Street view at the area you suggested, but believe the boot shop near the Black Horse Hotel differs in its form from the one in the photo. Perhaps you have some other suggestions?
