SHOTS: girls in a classroom learning to be shoe stitchers; cowhide is tanned in a tannery; the leather is then coloured and sprayed with lacquer; making of shoes in a factory, partially on a conveyor belt and partially by hand; center for shoe technique of TNO where the durability of shoes is tested and forms for new designs are developed; measurement of a child's feet in a shoe store.
