img_4125

The Siegel-Cooper Department Store was a large department store on 6th Avenue in Manhattan, opened in 1896. This era was a bit of a “golden age” in the development of massive, luxurious department stores, and this one had all the bells and whistles common in the day, such as an ice cream fountain and a roof garden. Stunning architecture for the building was a high priority, with a massive pillared archway greeting eager customers.

I recently found this 1905 catalog at a little antique store and couldn’t resist buying it. Below are scans of some of my favorite pages.
