Interesting sign! I wonder if the 'sternized' has something to do with the rubber in the soles. Just an idea.
That is unknown to me too!
Great sign, but I'm clueless!
Perhaps the owner's name was Stern, and he took special care of the shoes he worked on. Shoe repair is now a rare business. Only know of one within 50 miles of home.
Used to use them a lot,especially redoing leather soles.There is one still about 30 miles from me, but I used to get Bass shoes from one in my hometown.
Nice to see the sign remained.My SIGNS, SIGNS
Neat sign but no can't help with the word sternized.
Hard to find shoe repair shops anymore. I do not know what sternized means.
I think taken for granted has the best suggestion for that sign
Hi Christine.Very nice about advertising drawing in the wall.,Groettie from Patricia.

That seems to be a rare word. As are shoe repair shops!
