The front facade

This six-story department store is constructed with a cast iron and steel structure which allows for the extensively glazed facade--an advantage in enticing potential shoppers. There is a domed gazebo on the roof and a turret to one side.

The large oriel (or bay window) projecting from the upper floors seemingly supported by wrought iron oblique columns terminating in figural "capitals"

The entrance


Elegant swirling wrought iron and friezes with tiles
