We All Love Shoes Display
I did not have three thousand pairs of shoes. I had one thousand and sixty.”
All you shoe lovers out there can relate to the endless accusations of “How many shoes do you HAVE?!” Our current display includes a selection of shoes from the last 100 years, and one pair from much longer ago…. In the clear display box are a pair from our Archives, boys boots found in our Little Red Schoolhouse and believed to be from the time of Master Moody –the late 1700’s!
The rest of the exhibit includes the Victorian woman's everyday button boots, embroidered Chinese slippers and genuine alligator pumps, along with Italian stilettos and a pink flowered pair by American shoe designer Seymour Troyling.
