    Miners' Clogs

    The 1950s clogs has rounder toe-ends, some had steel toe-caps too. They also had thicker soles than the example shown, were generally matt black in colour and had steel studs on the soles too
  19. Thanks for the info. Only Phyll addresses my question which was 'what did they look like?' The one's I knew were heftier than those in her pic. - perhaps Devon Boy feels the same thing.

    Miners' Clogs

    I remember every house had a last,then Woolworths sold Stick a Sole to do repairs.
  21. Or was it "Henshalls"? “On the other corner was Roberts greengrocers, then Joe Henshall’s cloggers, which was the busiest shop in St Helens." https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/8930396.belting-response-over-site-of-old-leather-shop/

    Miners' Clogs

    Wasn't the clogger's business called Clare's?
  23. The Clog-maker/Repairer that I remember was in The Covered Market. His Stall backed onto Mrs Burkhill's Tea Stall - close to the 7, 8, 9, 96/97 Bus Stand. I think he also did ordinary shoe repairs. My grandad used to buy pieces of leather from him and 'heel ball' to colour the light edges of the leather after the repair had been done.
  24. Apparently it's just a re-branding and Millets are changing their name to Go Outdoors. https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/18083298.millets-not-closing-changing/ Change of signage then and more money wasted. Who runs these stores at all?
