The Inheritance: Century Old Baby Shoes And Gloves
Good craftsmanship lasts generations.
Our son received his first family inheritance this Christmas: a pair of baby leather shoes and a pair of children’s leather gloves, once owned by his American paternal great-grand father (born in 1901).
The leather shoes are soft, with a few wrinkles – perhaps from the first steps made by our son’s great-grandfather.
As for the pair of gloves, I can imagine them being worn at the age of 4 or 5 years old, for outings in Baltimore, walking around Eutaw Place.
Quite a journey for such timeless pieces. Let’s take care of them for the next generation!
