[Photo Album, Department Store]: Zur standigen Erinnerung an das am 1. Sept. 1935. gegrundete Geschaft. [In Commemoration of the Opening of the Store on September 1st 1935]
1935. Oblong small quarto. Cord-tied cloth board decoratively printed with a geometric pattern; tissue guard for each page. Just about fine. The album contains 44 mounted black and white gelatin silver photographs, with another 23 similar images laid in, for a total of 67 photographs. Titled in neat white album ink inside the front board, else the images are uncaptioned, but many of the images have additional signage within the image that would probably reward further research as to the exact location. Apparently meant to commemorate the opening of a German fabric and fashion store. The fascinating images are riotously stylized, with many featuring particularly modernist (or perhaps surrealistic) or creepy looking mannequins, all in service of the elaborate displays of clothing or fabrics, mostly it seems, for women's clothing. .
