America's 5 & 10 cent stores : the Kress legacy by Bernice L Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lavishly illustrated homage to the 5-&-10-cent store, architectural historian Bernice Thomas looks at the architectural achievements of the Kress Company. Devoted to bringing outstanding design to Main Street America, Kress supported an architectural division of more than 100 architects and draftsmen. The over 200 stores these people designed and built between 1900 and 1950 set a new standard in commercial architecture. Thomas takes us on an illustrated tour of sites across the United States - from New Orleans to Honolulu, Albuquerque to New York. She introduces us to the architects and how they deftly balanced sound merchandising principles with aesthetics
