Dates: October 18, 2013 – November 11, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, October 18, 2013 at 6:00 PM
The year is 1955. The paint is dry. The architects, decorators and designers have folded their blueprints and silently stole away. The door is open and the welcome mat is out. Everything is new – Even the address – planne and executed, with one eye on your comfort and the other on your shopping convenience. It is our pleasure to bring you the first split/level department store in Central Pennsylvania, The Boston Store.
The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is pleased to present a spectacular historical photography exhibit of the construction and grand opening of The Boston Store in 1955. The Boston Store was the original retail location in which the Midtown Scholar Bookstore now exists. The show will display not only photographs but original signs, light fixtures, blueprints and special stereo-scopes (original 3-D viewers) of the original Boston Store and its opening. The same areas of the store as they appear today will be shown using Instagram photography. Come see the original Boston Store, “The Store of Tomorrow is Here, Today”.
