The Folks Shoe Shop now restored!

This building is mentioned in the book "The Astaires" a book about Fred's life with his sister, Adelle. Got to visit West 46th street today, where the facade of Israel Miller's shoe store, The Folks Shoe Shop, has been restored, looking much as it did a hundred years ago. The four statues are Ethel Barrymore, Marilyn Miller, Mary Pickford and Rosa Ponselle. Their statues were lovingly restored at a restoration facility near my home in DC .
