11” x 14” photo album with a total of 28 photos of window displays in the 1940s and 50s. Eighteen measure 8” x 10” and there are an additional ten snapshots in the back of the album that measure 3.5” x 3.5.” The first page has a card for “Robert C. Mai, Creative Displays, 610 Trinity Avenue, New York, Photo: MO 5-9238. Most of the larger photos are credited to “Worsinger,” also known as Worsinger Window Service, which was a New York photography firm that specialized in documenting shop windows and store displays. One photo is of a B. Altman window and fifteen others are marked “Lentheric,” which was a perfume and cosmetics manufacturer. Some items of interest in the photo include pearls, handbags, Hermes, optical windows and a display which says “For the Bride who Marries an Army Man.”
The photos are held to the page with corner tabs and two are missing. Some photos have corner wear where they have popped out the tab. Some of the snapshots have surface wear. A wonderful look at a different time.
