A 10 year lease had been signed on the store building that was one of the oldest shoe firms in the area initially established by Morgan & Stoll.  The new owner S.Ferragamo from Italy made the Hollywood Boot Shop, 6683 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA telephone 577-101 one of THE places to have shoes made by hand.  Ferragamo studied the art of shoe making in Italy and at UCLA.  Ferragamo’s shoes first appeared on the silver screen in Cecil B.
