"Lewis's Department Store in Liverpool is a landmark that retains the affections of the city. But there is one part of the shop, the fifth floor, that many of those passing by will not know about, and that no shopper has been in for over twenty years. The photographer Stephen King was given access to this abandoned fifth floor to document the décor and fittings that remain from the store's 1950s heyday. The result is this enthralling collection of images, dispatches from a lost world of glamour and spectacle that was a retail phenomenon. Enlivened by interviews with several generations of Lewis's employees, who also sat for photographs at their original work stations, this book offers a vivid portrait of one of the city's great institutions."--P. [4] of cover.
