Election announcement 1904


The election for councillors to the Urban District Council of Stourbridge by the electorate of Wollaston resulted in the election of H. Neild Collis and Arthur T. Spiers.  This acknowledgement was published in the local paper, the County Express, on 2nd April 1904.  Arthur Spiers was the headmaster of the Boys’ School and found time to attend 17 council meetings during his first year as councillor, had served on four committees and had missed only one of the 62 committee meetings to which he had been summoned.
When he got into financial difficulties and wrote for help from William Henry Foster, the reply criticised his involvement in council affairs and hinted that he should not have become involved in activities other than his work as headmaster.

Back then I didn’t pay attention to who the man was doing the polishing in the video Fake Yeezy Boost 700 Inertia but a few months after, I found another video which really caught my attention. It was the official video of Brift H, the famous shoe shine bar in Japan.

It was the first time I’ve heard about a shoe lounge and was inspired by it. Hence the effort last year to create cobbler services based on shoe maintenance and restoration. What inspired me was the way Cheap Nike The 10 Air Force 1 was so passionate with his craft that he was able to create his own method of shoe polishing which earned him the title of World Champion of Shoe Shining last year.
