Pair of shoes 17.5 cm. long, 5.5 cm. wide and 7.4 cm. high. Hand made with wooden soles and leather uppers, the soles and heels shod with iron.

The shoes came from the Jack Painter family of Woodstock in 1984. Mr. Painter (1885 - 1949) emigrated from England and was a blacksmith by trade. Whether he made the shoes, or brought them with him as a memento of an earlier family member, is unknown.
