"Old Soles", a Short Film About a South Brooklyn Shoe Rebuilding Shop and the Three Generations Running It

Narratively, a site devoted to untold human stories, recently published a fascinating video profiling the three generations of men that have run F & C Shoe Rebuilding in South Brooklyn.

For the first time in his life, ninety-two-year-old Frank Catalfumo has stopped working at F & C Shoe Rebuilding in South Brooklyn, the shop he inherited from his father after World War II. Now the shop is run by Frank’s son Michael, who has also followed in his father’s footsteps. Though F & C is as busy as ever, the trade stops with this generation, as Michael’s children have been able to choose different life paths.
