A bootmaker clicker was the person who cut the uppers for shoes or boots from a sheet of leather. The job was named after the sound that the operator's machine made. It was a skilled trade because it was the clicker's responsibility to maximise the number of uppers which could be cut from a piece of leather, avoiding any thin areas.
