Santa Claus Lord and Taylor Christmas window

Santa Claus Lord and Taylor Christmas window - Samuel Lord, an immigrant to the United States from England and George Washington Taylor, his wife's cousin, founded the store in 1826 on Catherine Street in Manhattan in order to sell hosiery, misses' wear and "elegant Cashmere shawls". By 1861, the store was located on Broadway at Grand Street, and in 1870 they moved to a newly constructed cast-iron building at Broadway and 20th Street,

Lord and Taylor opened its Starrett and van Vleck designed flagship store and headquarters on Fifth Avenue between 38th and 39th streets on February 24, 1914.

Among other firsts, it was the first store to present innovative Christmas windows filled with holiday displays rather than merchandise,
