Shoe Shine, Canary Wharf

Well, well, lookie here...I find myself at the tail end of the year 2007 and in this high tech world of floating glass, shimmering storefronts (packed with the finest goods from all around the globe) and sat right under the most powerful symbol of progress and excellence in industry that one can find in the whole of the United Kingdom -
One Canada Square - Looking Festive
- hidden underneath the escalators, in the subterrainian spaces below, it is possible to see people, today, earning a living by sitting at people's feet, in public, and polishing their shoes...
Shoe Shine

How much does it cost?

Does the money go to Charity?

No idea, but it's definitely a business, not for charity...
