Philadelphia's Golden Age of Retail



Philadelphia is not only the birthplace of America, but also the incubator of our consumer culture. This profusely illustrated new book covers the stories of all the great merchants, from John Wanamaker, Strawbridge & Clothier, Gimbels, Lit Brothers, and N. Snellenburg & Co.

Other sections cover J.E. Caldwell & Co., Bailey Banks & Biddle, Nan Duskin, the Blum Store and Jacob Reed's Sons. Nostalgic, informative and highly amusing!
