Mansfield Shoe Co through the decades in pictures - can you spot anyone you know?

Mansfield Shoe Company – or ‘Shoe Co’ – was a popular employer in the town until its closure in 2004 and we are stepping back in time to take a look at life from the past at the iconic factory.

The firm was formed in 1900 and its imposing Dallas Street base – where boots and women’s shoes were made – was a landmark building which stood proudly on the gateway into the town centre for many decades.

Changes in world markets had an impact on the footwear industry in Mansfield and in July 2004 came the sad news that Shoe Co – one of the town’s best known names – would close.

Take a look through this gallery to see if you can spot any familiar faces.
