As the longest established shoemaker in England, the year was 1829 when Joseph Tricker founded the company. To set the scene from an historical perspective, that same year saw Robert Peel establish London’s first uniformed police force, whilst in America, Abraham Lincoln gave his first political speech. Louis Braille invented his system of finger- reading for the blind and Queen Victoria’s ascent to the throne was still eight years away. Tricker saw the birth of a modern world, a time for great enlightenment, learning and social reforms. This was the world in which the first retail orders for Tricker’s shoes were secured.
