For today's Sunday Shoe Spectacle post, a cool video on how shoes were made in Germany in the 1930s. This is a silent video that shows all the steps from picking out materials, drawing and cutting the pattern as well as the actual construction, all by hand! This video is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive.
I found this to be particularly interesting as I have done some shoemaking myself, though I fully admit my 18th century shoes still are not finished. But that's another story for another day! :)
