First of all, apologies for the inconveniently placed tree. Google Street View has no way around these things.
Mr Cobbler is a particularly interesting case when you visit his website, because it turns out he has a son. Here is the opening text on the homepage:
Mr Cobbler has been established for over 25 years. We have always offered high quality at affordable prices, which include shoe repairs, key cutting, trophies and engraving.
We now have our dedicated locksmith, Mr Locks, which also offers affordable services for your locksmithing needs. Mr Cobbler and Mr Locks are situated in Felixstowe Town Centre and is a father and son run business.
We offer high quality shoe repairs using high quality materials and equipment for both men's and ladies' shoes.
All our work is done on the premises and we have a fast turnaround on all of our services.
Arguably, this blog entry should therefore be titled Mr Cobbler and Mr Locks. However, it appears the son is not yet featured on the exterior shop signage, although he is part of the web address: mrcobblerandmrlocks.co.uk (Perhaps, being of a younger generation, Mr Locks was responsible for buying the domain name.)
It would be interesting to know when Mr Cobbler first saw in his son a potential Mr Locks.
As is very common, Mr Cobbler not only tackles shoe repairs, but also key cutting, trophies and engraving – a range of services that have become natural allies over the years.
