Uncle Fred used to make clogs. He would draw around your feet and then carve a pair of wooden clogs to fit. These were proper lancashire clogs, with backs aswell.
He had a boot shop, where he sold his clogs, and he also worked in the Post-Office, with Auntie Maggie. Fred later became the Postmaster of Brinscall. He was also active in local politics, as chairman of the District Council.
