My sketch of a cobbler's stall in Central, Hong Kong. This stall qualifies as the smallest shop I've seen here in Hong Kong. The floor measures about 3 feet wide by 2 feet deep. The cobbler's lap is his workbench. Re-soled shoes waiting to be picked up by customers advertise the quality of his work. The stall is festooned with shoe laces, inner soles and heel cushions hung with bits of wire and clothes hangers.
