Grandmother – Lavinia Barfoot – Morton’s Shoe Shop

Grandmother - Lavinia Barfoot - Morton's Shoe Shop

This is my grandmother, Lavinia, outside the shoeshop that my grandfather, Arthur, managed in Maidstone, Kent. She met him here and they’d clearly worked for a while together before they were married in 1921. It shows the name ‘Morton’s’ and indicates that the firm, although first operating in Shrewsbury, was successful enough to have a branch in Maidstone and later one in Carlisle, where my grandparents then lived before returning to Kent.
