magic shoe repair

Carmine Street
The charming Russian gentleman who runs this shop charges such reasonable prices, I hate to say he could really clean your clock!

Hi Ken!

Loving your daily photo blog. I like the way the sign is magically disappearing too. I'll definitely be coming back to see more daily captures of a facinating city :)
