H. 0. Selfridge Zropotes Xine Fronts
for Shops, Says Americas.
Finn the Anerina Anlilf r
The Architects and Builders' Journal,
London, has published, running- through
several Issues, a, discussion aa to the
problems In design that should dominate
shop fronts. The various writers have
each set forth with much Insistence their
views aa to Just how Important the front
of the shop should be In relation to the
designing of the Interior.
Desiring to secure the views of a prac
tical shopkeeper, the editors addresses
a letter to H. Gordon Selfridge, whose
fine building In Oxford Street, wherein
American methods of merchandising1
were for the first time attempted In
London, has received the highest com
mendation. It Is Interesting to note In Mr. Self
rldge's reply the careful thought which
no doubt every successful merchant gives
to details of his business, and It Is grati
fying as well to note the very evident
appreciation of the commercial value of
good architecture that Mr. Selfridge
shares In common with other men In
similar lines of business.
Mr. Selfridge writes, in part, as fol
lows: "I am one who believes that dignified
architecture aids very much that busi
ness which It Is to house. I feel that
the enUre abandonment of all attempts
at fine architecture simply to provide a
showcase from which the owner of the
shop can sell a few more goods is most
"It would be well to study the question
from a broader point of view. What are
the most pleasing and satisfactory re
sults obtained In France, America, Ger
many? No good building rests upon what
appears una snowcase. trvery wen-
deslgned edifice must have apparent
means of support, evidently strong
enough, to sustain the superstructure. A
building should, therefore, have piers
which are not hidden by mirrors nor by
decorations. The best buildings In the
countries mentioned, whether used for
little shoos or large stores, are all sup
ported from' the ground by columns and
piers evidently strong enougn to carry
"I earnestly advocate a street archi
tecture which shall be fine, stately, and
dignified. I urge that commerce and
architecture shall be twin brothers, or
partners. In the schema, rather than ene
mies, ana .that ail sense or wnat is good
In" one shall, not be sacrificed to secure
what may seem, for the moment, to .win
a little better result In the other. .
"The show window Is 'considered In
London, mora than anywhere else In
the world, as of prime necessity to the
shopkeeper: Fersoruuir," i ao not agree ;
with this position,' and If I may refer -to
our own store I would amy that .the show
windows 'are Important, but by no man
ner of means the whole thing. We could
abandon our windows' and do. probably
four-fifths aa much' business, ataply be
cause wo 'Insist- that .the department
themselves shall be the chief ettracttoa.
rather, than the .wtadowa.' .- v
The man' .who pays the rent moat
have something to say,aa to. ths -build-in,
Itself : otaerwlsexae may retrain froaj
occupying the same: but -I hope that,
wfctla -he -Is makinc big' roaiilremsnls
known, he "win feet that real architec
tural excellence .supelles an asset to his
business mad give It, 1b addition, a dig
nity end character, which a simple show
case ot a shop cannot possess."
