FIFTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SALE
Fifty-five years of this
Store's life have marked
a Steady and gradual ex
pansion, from tho modest
single lot store on lower
Fulton Street to the great
est retail establishment in
the Borough of Brooklyn.
1865 The Beginning
In 1865, when the Store began,
the Civil War was nearing iU
close; Leo had not yet surren
dered at Appomattox. The new
store faced a period of national
reconstruction. But it forged
ahead, outgrew by degrees its old
quarters and in 1885, two years
after the Brooklyn Bridge wa3
opened and while the horse cars '
were still jingling their way along
Fulton Street, it moved to its
Greater expansion followed.
Shortly after the cloao of the
Spanish War (1S99) another
reconstruction period, though a
short one the seven-story West
Building was added. Then the
building to the East was occupied
and later increased to five stories
in height, thus completing the
A. & S. Store as we know it to
day. Steady growth indeed! Now
the group of buildings, on both
sides of Livingston Street, com
prises nearly 800,000 square feet
over 18 acres devoted to
storckecplng, without including
the numerous outlying distribut
ing stations in Brooklyn and on
1920 Third Period
Now, In this new' period of
national reconstruction the
Store too, has large plans for
further development. But the
same unvarying principles that
have been significant of the
Store from the very heginning
will continue to guide it, and
will cause it to continue to ex
pand; because they are friend
Indeed, it has a greater In
centive to ' servo and a greater
expectation of sound growth than
ever before. For its opportuni
ties are vast.
Brooklyn, constantly growing,
is in population already the
largest of New York's boroughi.
It is estimated that the 1920
census will give it a population
of two millions and a half. A
Subway system that is rapidly
nearing completion (1920 will see
the practical fulfillment of the
entire scheme, with 56 miles of
new trackage) links up tho Store,
which possesses its own direct
entrance to the Interborough at
Hoyt Street, with the most re
mote districts of the whole city
from Westchester and Yonkers
on one side to Coney Island on
The beginning of its 55th
year finds the Store increasingly
young in spirit. Its desire to
grow with its field has caused it
to develop wide schemes for its
further expansion and better
ment. 1920 will see them in full
swing with the object of making
this still more the leading, the
modem, tho progressive great
Store of Brooklyn-
And in that youthful spirit,
full of new activity and new
growth, it goes forward into its
New Yyr, thankful for its
