Celebrating the mundane 


When did you last polish your shoes? Do your shoes need polishing? Where would you buy your polish?

How times have changed! Shining shoes may seem a thing of the past, but just suppose you still had to make your own polish!

The above recipes are the first in a book published before the First World War. It came from my grandmother. If trying any of the recipes – please remember Health and Safety which, of course, had not been invented in 1913!
