MOA Galleria - Lora Lee Dress Shop Window


New York - circa 1950s

Nighttime in 1950s New York. And here's the posh and fashionable window display (complete with Mannequins) at the Lora Lee Dress Shop, just oozing charm and retro swank!

See more MOA Galleria here!

Not sure about the clothes itself, but the window display is lovely.

Oh, my goodness, such a lovely postcard! I love this one! I actually like the clothes as well as the atmosphere. Everything looks so perfect. I want to transport myself back in time.

The window display is fantastic indeed. It looks like stage scenery - with its special air of mystery.

It's a great shot but it kinda creeps me out. There has to be some "Urban Legend" about New York models crossing some meek window dresser who flips out, kills the models, stuffs them and sticks them in the windows so they are forced to watch the passing world forever. Hang on. I think I need to make a movie.

They even had window displays in freestanding Sears stores, must've been really cool to see. Esp;ecially at night.

Vintage display windows are marvellous ! I went to Las Vegas recently, and much of what I saw made me ill.The mannequins were just ball heads with no facial features. The lighting was gaudy. The clothing was garish, and priced insanely. I prefer the old days.
