The Summer of 1962

As I was going through my files recently, I came across these great old scans of J. Press catalogs from the late 1950s and early 1960s. It is good to see things haven’t changed much over there —not considering the new Madison Avenue store —which is a welcome update from the crusty old store on 44th Street. The hi-res set of images can be seen here.

    Does anyone know what a J. Press shopping bag from the 1930″s would look like? I am doing a version of The Great Gatsby in NZ
