I’ve failed to find any similar images on the web and have no idea how old the shoe is. I know enough to keep the leather damp, as otherwise it dries and splits. Whilst it was a delight to find, I really don’t fancy keeping something which needs care and attention, so I’m hoping the Museum of London might be interested enough to keep it. If they don’t, do I chuck it back into the Thames?
