- Item Type:
- Black and white panoramic photograph of the E.S. Shoe Company's 43 employees taken in front of the 150 King Street. East, Kitchener, Ontario, facility in September, 1933. Those in the back row are standing; those in the middle and front rows are sitting on the grass. The man at the far left in the front row is identified as George Boesz.
Across the top of the building is the inscription: "The E.S. Shoe Co. Limited - Makers of High Grade Childrens [sic] Footwear". Between the first story and second story windows is painted the word "Kitchener." It appears the wording following the city name has been removed from the photographic image.
- It is believed that George Boesz worked at E.S. Shoe Co. Ltd. until around 1939. He was originally from Gagova, Yugoslavia (now Serbia).
Ernest Denton was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955.
This photograph is in fair condition: some tearing, fading, tape marks.
