THE SHOEMAKER’S WORKSHOP

gfx We all know that the cobbler is not supposed to go beyond his last. Here are the actual last. Wooden ones that the shoemaker used for shaping the shoes. He measured the foot of his customer, and shaped a pre-made last until it got the right size. The machine that is placed to the right of the door, was used for sewing the soles onto the leather. In the corner is a polishing machine used for giving the shoes a finishing touch. The large boots to the right were used by the fishermen. The workshop has belonged to Fridtjof Skogland of Kopervik.
