Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A very good-looking pair of black leather knee high boots. These boots are stamped with an arrow mark suggesting that they were Government Issue. The boots are stamped with the maker’s name ‘ADAMS BROS., RAUNDS’. The firm made large quantities of men's medium and heavy class goods for the home and shipping trade but also made Naval and Military goods for almost every part of the world.
Raunds, in Northamptonshire, played a large part in the boot and shoe industry until its decline in the 1950’s and 60’s, although several factories remained into the 90’s. Many of the firms in Raunds made the goods required by the Government, County Council, Territorials and other public bodies a specialty, and Wellington knee boots, and goods of this character, were manufactured in high quantities.
