Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Established more than 150 years ago, at the height of the golden age of department stores, Lewis’s department store in Liverpool is a city institution, a retail phenomenon and the subject of countless urban legends.

            
Lewis’s Fifth Floor
presents a stunning collection of photographs from the “lost” fifth floor of the store, which was sealed off more than thirty years ago and hasn’t been seen by the public since. Photographer Stephen King reveals the hidden canteen where the young Beatles played staff parties at Christmas; the intricate mosaics that have become registered historic works; the breathtaking scale of what was at one time the world’s largest hair salon, and even Jacob Epstein’s iconic statue, The Spirit of Liverpool Resurgent—together representing a strikingly well preserved image of shopping’s glamorous past.
