AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Schumann the Shoeman was adored for two reasons. The first was for the shoes that he made, which were not only dazzlingly beautiful, but they lasted a lifetime and no two pairs were ever the same. The second reason was for the elegant shoe-shaped sign that hung outside his cobbler's shop in the busy little town of Newmarket. When the sign's laces dangled untied the townsfolk knew that the cobbler was hard at work and was not to be disturbed. But when the laces were tied up into an elegant bow, everyone knew that a wondrous new creation was about to promenade the footpaths of town. However, all this was about to change...'
