Ralph's Shoe Repair is owned by Hakoup Mktchean. Ralph originally started
the business -- after one month he got into a fight and went to jail
where he sold the business to an Italian-- not named Ralph-- who sold
it to a Korean, who sold it to an Armenian who sold it to Hakoup seventeen
years ago. Hakoup used to have some Armenian customers from South Pasadena,
but his last customer, a ninety eight year old lady died a few months
ago. He aksed for the poem
poster which was translated into Armernian.
