Hutton's Shoe Repair Shop

Thank you to Graham Hutton for sending me the  photos above of his family's shoe repair shop.  The shop has stood on the corner of Elgin Terrace and Edina Street since 1923.

Photos 1 and 2.

These photos both show the exterior of the shop.  The signage can be easily matched in these two photos taken about 30 years apart.

Photos 3 and 4.

These two interior views both include Ian Hutton who now (in 2012) manages the shop.  The shop was previously run by his father, and before that by his grandfather.

Graham Hutton wrote:

The Hutton Family

"Charles Hutton had this shop from 1923 to 1952.

Margaret Hutton, Charles'  wife continued to work in the shop -  until she was 83 years old!

William Hutton, Charles' son was the owner of the shop from 1952 to 1986.  His other interest was horses.

Ian Hutton, Charles' grandson has run the shop since 1986."

Graham Hutton added:

"The shop has hardly changed."

"People in their 80s come into the shop when visiting Scotland, and say, "The shop has hardly changed."

Apart from the key cutting signs inside, that's pretty much true.  I'm sure people will recognise the shop, inside and out, and recognise the very few people that have worked there."

Master Cobblers

"There have only been 3 master cobblers there in 90 years - my brother Ian, my father William and my Grandfather Charles.

My Gran worked there, 5 days a week, chatting to customers for ages until she was in her 80s.  My 79 year old mother still goes in to help, one day a week and takes shoes in and gives them out during my brother's holidays."
