Shoemaker's Poem Advertising His Business

Period:
18th Century
Description:

This poem was written by Kilmarnock shoemaker William Findlay to advertise his business.

 

Here lives a man, does not refuse

To make and mend both Boots and Shoes

My Leather's good, my Price is just,

I deal quite fair, but gives my trust

If Ladies please to deal with me,

Their humble Servant I will be,

WILLIAM FINDLAY
