Totally changing the subject for a one-post break before I finish up the final installment of the Murphy’s Mart saga. Between just starting with a new company and the tons of stuff we’re busy with as a family right now, I’m just not feelin’ it. I value your readership too much to put something half-baked on here. Thanks for understanding.
So instead, we’ll revisit E.J. Korvette, the beloved “promotional department store” chain, and the subject of what has far and away been one of the most popular series on this site. This mind-breakingly beautiful night shot depicts their Manhattan flagship store as it appeared in 1958. It’s late, and pretty soon there’ll only be time for window shopping. Even on a cold night, with a storefront like this, I’m up for it!
