Men’s shoe department at Bullocks Wilshire, Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, circa early 1930s

Men's shoe department at Bullocks Wilshire, Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, circa early 1930sPhotos of the striking Bullocks Wilshire department store on Wilshire Blvd abound around the internet but far more rare are photos of what the store looked like inside. This shot is circa 1930s, and shows us the men’s shoe department. I love the spare minimalist approach, with the clean lines, and the vertical sense of light without the clutter of rows upon rows of shoes on display.

(If you would like to see what the interior of the building looks like today, I have a Facebook album of photos taken August 2014 – http://bit.ly/bwalbum )
