Photo Details

  • Title: Percy's Shoe Shine Service
  • State/Province/Region (required): Tennessee
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: nashville
  • Description: Percy's been shining shoes for 62 years, much of that time in his shop in the Arcade. Sales clerks, executives, lawyers, and state senators alike have made a place in their regular schedules for this pragmatic and lazy pleasure. It used to be said that shoes make the man. Make that shiny shoes. Percy can take care of that for you. I asked Percy about secrets to his success. His answer: “Man, I just work. I work on something, and when I get finished, I work on something else. That’s all.”
  • Notes: This is one of 40+ images in a series called WorkSpace, which features "behind the counter" looks at iconic and unusual work environments around the Nashville area.
  • Gear: Canon 5D, Canon 17-40 L lens
