365 Days of Danvers: 28

Home of James Kennedy
Shoemaker
1848
Locust Street, Danvers Ma

As I walk around Danvers for photo ops, I notice a lot of this old signs on homes,
and I also notice that a lot of the home owners were shoemakers.  There were also several Shoe Manufactory companies in Danvers; E & A Mudge & Company on Centre Street, Israel H. Putnam Shoe Factory on Locust Street, the White Brothers Shoe Factory located on Locust Street right above Wenham Street, Martin Kelley Shoe Company at Holten and Pine Streets, and the well known Ideal Baby Shoe Company.
