Northampton shoemaking

One of two shoemaking epicenters in England, the Northamptonshire region went from 45 shoe factories right after World War II to just five. According to this AskAndy thread, the remaining five are:
  • Edward Green
  • John Lobb
  • Church
  • Crockett & Jones
  • Trickers
Not surprisingly, these are rather familiar names to those who wear them.
