Frank Eberhart: Shoe Repair Man

As mentioned below, Frannie and I have Faces of Athens up and running. Our second story is on Frank Eberhart, owner of Marvins Shoe Repair on College Ave. Eberhart and his brother are the last in Athens, Ga., to practice their craft. Fearing the death of the trade, Eberhart perseveres, working 10+ hours/day in hopes that at least one of his sons will share his passion, extending the life of the craft.

Below I have posted a few stills. Visit Faces of Athens (or the Red&Black) to see the whole story.
