I love this photo! My grandfather was a shoemaker,too. I can remember going into his shop and watching him work. I can remember the smells of the shop, and of his Palumbo cigar, which was always in his mouth. Thank you for bringing such nice memories back to me. I am going to try to find my photo of him in his shop in Brooklyn, NY. It's from around 1930 or so.
Hi Miguel, It has been many months since I saw your wonderful photo. I finally found and uploaded a photo of my grandfather in his shoe store and thought you might like to see it: [link] I will be back soon to check out your gallery again. Best wishes to you! Maria
