Date 1916
Description These store fronts were made of copper (does not rot, warp, or rust). They claim to have made and installed over 50,000 of them. The catalogue illustrates 47 examples in small but clear halftones, two detail illustrations of sash and 8 full-page measured drawings of various types of storefronts. These drawings are elevations of the fronts but with receding shop windows and entryways in perspective and are very appealing and valuable for restoration purposes as well as fine record of an aspect of American commercial culture which is rapidly disappearing. Their main factory was in Niles, Michigan with others in Berkeley, Ca and Guelph, Ontario. There were sales offices in all the major American cities as well as an office in Montreal.

Transcript Boosting Business with— Kawneer* Store Fronts j You Can Benefit by the Experience of Others With Kawneer Store Fronts ' S FAR as you are concerned, the value of an article consists in its ability to either make money, or save money for you. Authorities on modern merchandising agree that properly designed show windows will draw business into your store. "The more completely you can place the inside of your store on the sidewalk, the more surely you will get the people from the sidewalk into the inside of your store." More business means greater profits—in other words, properly designed show windows will make money for you. The experience we have gained in the years we have been manufacturing Kawneer Store Fronts enables us to advise you just what front will fit your particular requirements—to offer a Kawneer Store Front designed for you, for your business, for your needs, a front must be attractive, and at all times represent your merchandise, your methods of doing business. In order not to be continually called on to pay painting and repairing bills of all sorts install a material that does not deteriorate, that needs no attention. Copper does not rot, warp, or rust so is practically everlasting—Kawneer Store Fronts are made of copper. They cost nothing for up-keep, therefore their first cost is the only cost. Kawneer Store Fronts are therefore both money making and money saving. As it is impossible for you to talk with the merchants for whom we have installed fronts, I am going to show you photographs of some of the 50,000 Kawneer Store Fronts, large and small, with letters, as to the money Kawneer has made and saved for the "men behind the fronts." If they can make money with them, why cant you? Three
