Description:Shoemaker using lasting pliers..

Invogue was the only Stone shoe manufacturer apart from Lotus Ltd. to survive beyond the Second World War. By 1932 the company, which belonged to the Reinli family, had taken over Perry’s shoe factory which stood behind 59 High Street. Invogue made very high quality shoes for London’s West End shops and had a workforce of around 40 people. The factory closed in about 1950 and was taken over by Metrobond. The building has since been demolished and houses built on the site.
