The Old Shoe-Seller

I am in the process of adding some old photographs to the website. I was particularly intrigued by the image of a shoe-seller and repairer below, not because it showed how much some things had changed, but because it showed how little had changed for some people.

Just for comparison's sake, here is an image of a shoe-seller pictured today in the Sofatel area close to Souq Waqif.
