Review:

"Lisicky generates memories here of goods beautifully displayed, the slight whooshing sound that the pneumatic tube made as it whisked a charge to the business office for approval and of stores gaily decorated not only for holidays but for various seasons."



"Michael J. Lisicky, a noted chronicler of East Coast department stores, had a local hit three years ago with his book, 'Hutzler's: Where Baltimore Shops'. Now he is taking us on another nostalgic shopping tour to several of the city's sorely missed stores. Let's go shopping!" --Baltimore Sun



"A follow-up to his wildly-popular Hutzler's: Where Baltimore Shops, this book widens the scope to look at other legendary retailers of yesteryear." --Baltimore Magazine



"Lisicky, through meticulous research and interviews, has culled together a stunning portrait of Baltimore in days gone by." --Maayan Jaffe, Baltimore Jewish Times

Book Description History Press (SC). Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Hutzlers. Hechts. Hochschilds. Stewarts. These were the four grand department stores for loyal Charm City shoppers for over one hundred years. Though these giants of the retail scene have been lost, the memories remain. Generations of local children were enchanted by the Toytown Parade at Hochschilds and the Christmas displays at Stewarts--and who can forget Hechts Festival of Flowers or Hutzlers delectable Wellesley Fudge Cake While local author and retail historian Michael J. Lisicky recalls readers to fonder days, he also explores this bustling scene as a barometer for Baltimore society. Lisicky chronicles the 1955 sit-in at Reads drugstore, the stores policies on segregation and the devastating effects of 1968 riots on the area. Through meticulous research and interviews with management insiders, former employees and shoppers, Lisicky renders a stunning portrait of Baltimore in days gone by. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781609496678
