Director Barbara Williams assures us that a visit to the "Shoe Museum" will be a good one - if patrons call ahead first! Many of the shoes from her museum are on loan to a show mounted at Drexel University. An interview with Clare Sauro, one of the curators of "Rest Your Feet", graphically illustrates the now outlawed practice of "footbinding" and the doll-like shoes that the "footbound" wore.
