'New-Boots'_stroke-163x96.pngNot spectacular at first sight, but if we take a closer look, we discover lots of lovely details. An average shop, selling outerwear, as well, as ladies underwear. Indication labels at the showcase top giving information about a variety of goods, and special offers. Things, we don't realize anymore in today's bustling everyday life. Not too long ago, stores like this were common, in nearly all districts of the bigger cities.

and_stroke-55x96.png A little boy and a man are waiting in front of the shop, but what are they waiting for? Somehow this whole scene seems to be familiar, if it was from 'just around the corner'.
The portrait of the back cover displays Ian Dury in a rather provoking pose. Both sides of the inner sleeves display a compilation of black and white photographs from different years.
