Join this fascinating lecture focused on department stores in the U.S.!  Inspired by the book he is writing – The Romance of Retail – Robbie Amodeo’s debut lecture with the Alliance covers the glamorous heyday of department stores and how they evolved since the 1800’s, including the “firsts” in America and how the American Midwest was as relevant to the burgeoning retail as cities such as NYC and Philadelphia.  Throughout the talk, enjoy the photos and vintage pieces that Robbie will highlight.
