Two large fashion window display photographs of men's suits in downtown Bridgeport, Connecticut

Circa 1925. Two black & white photo images (8" x 10") on glossy stock mounted in Crown Studio mats (11 1/4" x 13 1/4"). Images are night shots of windows, depicting surroundings full of architectural details. Very minimal soiling to lower fore-edge. 1 image with a bit longer exposure time, still a very good pair of photos. Item #58977

These two commercial photos of 1920s window displays provide an invaluable historical glimpse into the marketing of men's fashions at the height of the Jazz Age. The photos include unique period elements with breathtaking flower arrangements positioned amongst the displayed clothing. The men's suits range in tints and style, primarily including double-breasted and single-breasted suits, with trousers carefully draped over surrounding decorative tables and stands, cravats at the neck, and each with a dapper cane displayed above it. Rich draperies of men's suit fabrics have been arranged below and around the displays. Frank Jacoby's store was a thriving business in Bridgeport, CT. at 1083 Broad Street, until the throes of the Great Depression when they were forced to close in 1933.
