Ms. Persing painted the Queen Slipper City mural with the Discovery Club students at Whittier Middle School. It celebrates Haverhill’s booming shoe industry which thrived here for over 180 years. The shoe industry was the cornerstone of Haverhill’s economy, and fine ladies shoes, or slippers as they were known, were Haverhill’s specialty. The shoes in this mural were modeled after ones actually produced in Haverhill in the early 1900’s.
