“Illinois Department Store Bill (1897), Chicago Dry Goods Reporter, Vol. 27 (April 3), page 10. Tarr (1971) quotes “In no other city of Illinois does the department store exist as it is in Chicago. Until this evil…becomes more widespread, it is not probable that many State legislatures will take it into serious consideration.” In the April 17 issue “Ebb of Department Store Fight,” Tarr reports this quote “The great consuming public has no quarrel with an institution which it believes to have been instrumental in reducing the cost of living,” (pp. 9-10). The April 17 issue reports that on April 8, the anti-department store bill failed in the house by a vote of 63 to 77. The following quote was made in the Tarr article: “It is no crime to sell dry goods and shoes under one roof, and the department store stands vindicated.” This last quote reminds me of the series of retail and manufacturing restrictions imposed in Parisian business from the 13th to the 18th c. as reported by Franklin (1894) where the state restricted who could make what, who could buy from whom and who could sell to whom in order to protect apprenticeship system in place (guilds). It was France’s way of dictating the roles and positions in this pre-industrial, pre-market capitalistic society.

James, Kathleen (1997), Erich Mendelsohn and the Architecture of German Modernism, NY: Cambridge University Press. The book discusses Mendelsohn, the great German architect, who built not only department stores but many other types of stores including, office buildings,
theaters, and the famed Einstein Tower, and so forth. But he is better known as the German department store architect. The book is dry to read and the references are, as expected in German. The book was selected because Coles (1999) stated that the previous guru of German architecture, Alfred Messel, had built his Wertheim department store in the 1870s, as claimed. Yet according to James, it was in 1904, which would put the department store industry considerably behind relative to other European, US, and Canadian department store merchants (e.g. Stewart, Boucicaut, Field, Chauchard, Wanamaker, Cognacq, Lehmann, Eaton, etc.). Chapter 5 is interesting because it links advertising with architecture and says that advertising in Germany “expanded enormously during the second half of the twenties. Yet Coles (1999) gave the impression that it was in the late 19th c. Chapter 6 is on the department store and Mendelsohn and is a must to read. Page 208 discusses the Nazi hatred for the department store but does not state that many were burnt down as a result of that ideology in the 1930s. Note that the German controversy over the department store coincided with the early 1930s USA and Canada’s government investigations of the economic impact of large scale retailing on small retailers and prices, notably the chain store and the department store chain.

Jefferys, James B. (1954), Retail Trading in Britain 1850-1950, London: Cambridge University Press. This is a voluminous book of 500 pages. It traces British retailing from 1850 to 1950, not only in general but by trade area as well (i.e. grocery, meat, milk, clothing, footwear, furniture, etc.). In each trade area, Jefferys gives an account of the role played by department stores (as well as other types of retail stores) in selling the particular type of goods in question. His main goal was to show "the importance of these trades in the social structure and economy in general" (page XV). He also makes a clear distinction between the retail trade before 1914, from 1914 to 1939, and from 1939 to 1950, with three separate chapters analyzing the distributive trades (part of the service sector) of each period (i.e. chapters 1 to 3). Finally, he has a neat chapter (chapter 4), which looks at the development of large scale retailing from 1850-1950. Much information on department stores is contained in this book. See pages 161-162, 325-326 on cash handling systems.
Jefferys, James and Derek Knee (1962), Retailing in Europe Present and Future Trends, London: Macmillan, pp. 59-62. The book has a short discussion on the department store, along with other retailing format. The authors say that the department store began to appear in Germany from 10 to 20 years after they first appeared in Paris and London in the 1860s and the 1870s. The only exception was in Rome when by 1914, the city still did not have any.

Jones, Kenneth and James Simmons (1990), The Retail Environment, London: Routledge. The authors pesent retaling form a locational geiographical perspetive. The book has lots of Canadian content given that both authors are from Toronto. The department store is often mentioned through out the book and the authors provide original insights as to why the department store has lost market share. The book avoids the 4P approach that far too many retail books have adopted. It is a solid macro-oriented book on retailing the authors show the complexity of locational retail analysis. The book’s description by the publishers: “Despite its great size and importance within the economy, the retail sector is controlled by a relatively small number of retail chains, shopping centre developers and government agencies. At the same time retail activities and commercial services are a significant and visible part of our social system-they both reflect and shape our preferences, lifestyle and more. We are what we consume, and our comsumption priorities describe our society; but these preferences are mediated through the actions of such institutions and organizations as the chains, shopping plazas and urban planners, acting either jointly or in competition. This book describes and explains retailing with a particular emphasis on the problem of store location and on the spatial supply side. The text is divided into four parts and in part one the student is introduced to the basic principles and components of the retail system. The spatial pattern of demand is emphasized, but income and demographics are discussed as well. The chapter on the supply side looks at the corporate composition of retailing in some detail, stressing the degree of concentration in the industry. A final chapter introduces the study of consumer behaviour. Part 2 describes the spatial structure of retail activity, at both the settlement and intraurban scale, but always with an eye on the location decisions of retail chains and developers. The complementary chapters on the directions and processes of change in retail structure introduce new topics and themes and lay the framework for later applied studies. In part 3, retail structure is examined from the viewpoint of business, introducing many of the most widely used procedures in store location studies. Students are urged to evaluate these techniques in terms of the retail chain's strategies and requirements. How much information and model building is appropriate for a new chain that is moving into a rapidly growing market? Finally, part 4 takes a brief look at the policy implications of retail activities and the possible direction for change in the retail system of tomorrow.”

He wanted to have his very own “cathedral of commerce,” as the building was called, much in the same way as Stewart and other department store entrepreneurs built their own buildings. Is it a trait to have retail giants immortalize their achievement via a building?

The building might well have been real, but to conclude that it was erected as a department store insinuating that it was managed as a department store of the mid-19th c. and beyond is garbage.

This short student report has some interesting photographs. St Paul Street is the oldest street in Montreal and many buildings of the mid-1850s and beyond reflected the Greek revival architectural movement that was occurring in the US. This style had been in vogue in England before it came to the US. Stewart’s Marble Palace simply was a reflection of this modern movement away from Roman architecture. The period 1820-1860 is cited as to when this style was in vogue, even though many buildings reflected it before and after this suggested time frame.

The Fair department store of Chicago was founded in 1875. Kelley was GM of Mandel Brothers, Chicago. The Fair was purchased in 1922. He says as an e.g. Listerine, a brand selling at 79 cents when it cost 63 cents to buy. It cost the Fair 17 cents to sell the item or 80 cents. So selling this branded item at 79 cents does not offer the margin the store needs.

Ketchum, Morris Jr. (1948), Shops and Stores, NY: Reinhold Publishing. The book should have been entitled shops and department stores because over 200 pages of this 300-page book are on the department store. The author discusses every facet of the department store including: fixtures, displays, water supply, wiring, walls, windows, elevators, escalators, store fronts, sprinkler systems, fire alarm systems, flooring, lighting, marble, drainage systems, fitting rooms, delivery, etc.

They say that bringing young shoppers is important. Department stores “are creating more theatrical environments that use music and light to mimic the excitement young shoppers have learned from specialty store.” They are forgetting that department stores of old invented such an environment.
Kidwell, Claudia and Margaret Christman (1974), Suiting Everyone: The Democratization of Clothing in America, Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution Press. This book is published by the National Museum of History and Technology and was sold through the Superintendent of Documents, US Government Printing Office Cat # SI 3.2:SU 3, stock # 047-001-00119-2. The book is a gold mine of old ads from the late 18th to modern times, with an emphasis of 19th. c. ads. There are many pages devoted to the department store, notably pp. 154-164. The book discusses in detail the history of ready-made clothes in the US and argues that, unlike European countries, clothes as a form of class distinction did not exist in the US. The authors discuss the lower cost of buying ready to wear vs. sewing, as quoted on page 149 in the book and on page 158, a discussion on the elaborate window displays by Jordan Marsh, dated 1883. Overall, a neat book to read for it traces the history of ready to wear clothes from its modest beginning to the invention of proportional measurements, paper patterns, cutting tools, the sewing machine, electricity, iron for pressing clothes, and so forth. Ready-made clothes became a mass market only in the late 1800s and early 1900s even though such clothes were sold much earlier. Tailoring required expert craftsmanship. These later became merchants, and finally, mass distribution was required (i.e. large stores like the ‘specialized’ department store such as Filene’s, Wanamaker, and Jordan Mash).
Kiesler, Frederick (1930), Contemporary Art Applied to the Store and Its Display, NY: Brentano's. A brief but very stimulating book even if the amount of text is minimal. This architect has a lot of insight and what he says has often profound meaning. The department store is discussed throughout the book in short but insightful comments about the building, displays, storefronts, etc.

King, Moses (1893), King's Handbook of New York City, An Outline History and Description of the American Metropolis, second edition, Boston, Mass. This one thousand-page book was planned, edited and published by Moses King. It is similar in content to a tourist guidebook, but with detailed information. The book provides a detailed description of the city from hotels, retail,
manufacturing, monuments, hospitals, government offices, etc. The late A. T. Stewart is mentioned repeatedly but not the stores because they were long gone. Two fascinating points are that Moses refers to the department store as the bazaar (pp. 240, 844) or emporium (p. 146). The use of the word 'department' was reserved for a manufacturing firm's various departments (i.e., accounting, shipping and handling). For e.g. on page 898, he refers to the Francis Leggett's 25 departments, 'each of which is in charge of a competent manager.' Thus the term 'department store' may have been a spin-off of the term used to refer to the various departments in a manufacturing firm, given the nature of the retailing business. The first edition published in 1892 used the term 'bazaar' and 'emporium' on pp. 214, 786-788, 796-797. Similar to Benson (1884), King does not use the term ‘department store’ but instead he calls the new institution a dry-goods store, large bazaar store, houses, and distinguishes between the dry goods store and the modern bazaar store. Hopkins (1899) uses the expression "known generically as the department store" p. 4. The other important point in King's (1893) book is that he states on p. 210, that the Western Union Telegraph Company uses pneumatic tubes which "extend under Broadway from 23d Street to Dey Street…messages are sent a distance of about 2.5 miles. Similar tubes extend from Dey to Broad Street." This fact means that pneumatic tubes were used earlier than originally thought.
