This style apron is known as a cobbler's apron, although there is no evidence that it was designed for or by shoemakers. Historically it was worn by women for light housework.
Although I moved to the suburbs over 20 years ago, I still miss the sights, sounds, and even some of the smells of the city. When I stand in the middle of my cobbler's apron, I can imagine that I am back in the middle of the city, up high, with a view of the things that I miss. Someday, I hope to move back to the ever changing and challenging town that I love.
