Description, including signature and date

This huge shoe repair shop is dated 1900 and signed in two places. On the back wall are signs advertising prices, types of shoes, and praise for the work of the cobblers. Around a drawn clock are the words "Hoch soll er leben" (Long may he live), the traditional "Happy Birthday" song in Germany. Below the floor is a large sign with "Live and Let Live Come In and Get Your Shoe Repair't Boots and Shoes Made to Order."
