Storyline

Henry Hobson runs a successful boot-maker's shop in nineteenth-century Salford. A widower with a weakness for the pub opposite, he tries forcefully to run the lives of his three unruly daughters. When he decrees 'no marriages' to avoid the expensive matter of settlements, eldest daughter Maggie rebels and sets her sights on Will Mossop, Hobson's star boot-maker. Maggie and Will leave to start up in competition, and she then turns her mind to helping her sisters marry their chosen partners. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}
