You don't see clogs like that today, pointed toed Pit Clogs, with clasp fasteners..
...and usually bought a size larger than was needed so they could be slipped off if the foot was trapped.
Up to the age of 9, I like the other kids, wore clogs on weekdays. Girls' clog had leather strips, while the boys had irons. I was envious of the boys, because they could "spark" their clogs, while girls couldn't. remember the song about Lowry? "Kids with their sparking clogs"?
I was born in Hindley in 1946 and both my sister and I wore clogs yep we had irons on the heals.
