Vintage Ad Friday – B. Altman & Co.

B. Altman & Co. began as a dry goods store in 1864. It later became a high end department store. One could purchase elegant, expensive high fashion clothing or choose from a fine selection of imported fabrics and have a dress custom made. I found an interesting New York Times article telling all about the grand opening of one of their stores. Click here if you wish to read it. It details some of the various clothing items available as well as describing those in attendance. I chose to share these ads simply because I love the dresses and, of course, the hat! I just adore hats, especially vintage ones. They are so pretty!
