Description

A group of Belgian cobblers pose outside their workshop with some of the tools of their trade on the table in this 1916 photograph. These men provided an important camp service in terms of repairing worn out shoes and producing new products. Unskilled POWs also gained the opportunity to learn a new trade that they could practice after their repatriation.
