Island History Trust Image Collection


Mr J. Green, boot repairer, had this shop in Westferry Road for six or seven years during the 1930s - he lived in Claude Street. The little boy is Billy Williams, who lived over the shop; in the window behind the curtains is John Linderman, who helped in the shop. The shop had previously belonged to the Gaskins.
