Boston Had Style.....have a look!!!

Hello Retro Boston Lovers!


Thanks to another new friend of the blog I have more wonderful images to share!
Andrew, an Art Director with a passion for the stores of old...just like all of us...has sent these treasures.


More charge plates from Jordan Marsh...My first one was just like the top one:-)

RH Stearn's and Jordan Marsh building plaques live on!







The grand entrance to RH Stearn's on Tremont St. still intact and in fine shape!



And hat boxes...I must say these GREAT hat boxes are my favorites...why?






I had hoped that we would have samples of the old store logos and these hat boxes give us a great insight into the "Style" that graced our once busy Boston streets. Enjoy these logos of taste and distinction that remind us all of times past.
Andrew...Thank you! Feel free to share anytime! We so enjoy it!

Oh, I saw that last one, from Jordan Marsh, and I was instantly transported back to my childhood! That design was everywhere during Christmas shopping of my youth!

Great site, and thank you very much for bringing it to us.
