World-famed
This former shoe shop in Tavistock is now Specsavers. Samuel Lennard began shoe manufacture on his own account in Leicester in 1876. Working with his brothers to retail shoes they traded for many years as varous incarnations of the Public Benefit Boot Company. The business was acquired by Great Universal Stores in 1973 and eventually disappeared into the now defunct Easiphit shoe shop business.
