    And Ron Pinhasi, from the People's Republic of Cork is one of the lead investigators! We might be something of a sartorial wasteland, but there are a few of us who know about shoes...

    I see the beginnings of the Austro-Hungarian school - nay, tradition - of shoemaking. Note too the distinctive last shape, already present in this early incarnation. [​IMG]
