Selecting leather to make footwear
Bill Bird was one of the few people left in Britain to make boot trees. A boot tree (seen in Bill's left hand) supports leather boots when they are not in use. Bill has also made riding boots for Royalty around the world. His company now makes bespoke (made specifically to fit each person) shoe lasts and footwear for people who are not able to find shoes which fit from mainstream shops.
