Vintage Shoes

 

Her feet have walked for many miles
 
In boots and shoes of different styles
 
Today they might be out of fashion
 
Still, Vintage shoes remain her passion.

  10. 1936 walking up the steps of a Pullman Coach on legs covered with silk fully fashioned stockings, yes I've seen them.
    Using a button hook was my first training step as a two year old. lol
    All Aboard.

    Resplendent in their silken gowns
    with hats that should be seen.
    I loved the time when the rich were rich
    when interest reigned supreme.

    I loved the time when the rich were rich
    a Pullman coach a sight to see.
    Standing in the station there
    waiting just for me.

    The rich would sip from glasses lit
    by just the warmest glow
    From table lamps with reddened shades
    as I remember so.

  15. Lovely photo! I've inherited a shoe button hook from my grandmother, so I'm sure she wore boots similar to those in her day.

  28. Thanks for the visit Bert. The old shoes are in the passage way of an old homestead nearby. It still has many of the old family treasures throughout the home. I asked if I might take a couple of photos of these shoes and also the passageway through the home and my request was accepted. So actually this was a privilege for me because it is a private house.
