I loved looking at these wonderful old boots. I’m sure they were high fashion when they were first worn. What was life like then? And I can’t help wondering if women were as shoe-crazy then as they are now??

This grouping of beautiful vintage ladies’ footwear is on view at Old Bedford Village, Bedford, Pennsylvania. http://www.oldbedfordvillage.com/

My thanks to the talented Anna Lenabem at Flickr and Jerry Jones of Shadow House Creations for the great textures. Created in Photoshop CS4 and CS5, Capture NX2, Topaz and Adobe Camera Raw.
