Fall and Winter Opening of Our
New Millinery Department
We take great pleasure in asking you to inspect our exhibit of millinery. We are displaying
in our new showrooms some of the very best examples of the handiwork of the great French art
ists, such as Paul Poirct, Caroline Reboux, Mme. Georgette, etc., truly wonderful in artistic beauty
and workmanship, and we especially pride ourselves on the splendid showing of our own designers,
creations of our own workrooms, that must appeal to the critical patron as worthy of comparison
with imported models and moderately priced.
Only merchandise of known reliability will be on sale in this department, as has been our cus
tom for 52 years, earning for us an envied record of confidence, evidenced by constantly increasing
business, necessitating additional buildings and departments.
With apologies for your kind indulgence while in a temporary location, offering inadequate
facilities to serve your wants, we now invite you to the most modern and commodious Millinery
Department in Washington.
