store windows

Category: store windows

When I was first faced with the prospect of writing a book about the history of a department store, I figured that it would be easy. I would tell about the stores, their size, their architectural style, and how their appearance changed over the years. However, since research also involves talking with real human beings, I learned that these sadly-missed institutions housed much more than just hosiery or pots and pans. They were the workplace, shopping center, and dining spot for real people, places where anything could happen. And it often did!
