    Throughout much of the 20th century, Benefit Footwear was a nationwide brand with retail stores, repair shops and factories stretching from Newcastle to Cornwall. Illustrated with period advertisements and archive photographs of Benefit shops and factories, this history traces the company's rise, from a single shop opened in Hull in 1875, and its ultimate fall as it was absorbed into the British Shoe Corporation in the 1960s and the name disappeared from British high streets.
