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 Frontsj Prove Our Statements for Yourself ^^l^HE most convincing evidence possible is proof which M * j one gets at first-hand. Write to any of the concerns ^i w whose fronts we illustrate or whose letters we quote, or ask any merchant in your own town who has a Kawneer Store Front, as to the "pay for itself" or "no up-keep" features of Kawneer. Prove our statements for yourself and realize all that the word Kawneer means. Don't be content to showr your goods in windows installed 20 or 30 years ago for a butcher, a baker, or a candlestick maker, but incorporate every selling idea possible, in a modern, up-to-date store front. A front is just as individual, just as characteristic of your store, of your way of doing business, as your thumb print is of you. It should be the Bertillion record of your merchandising methods and of your goods. What you must have is a Kawneer front, so designed that when people think of jewelry'or shoes or drugs, or whatever line of business you are in, they'll think of your front, your store. Take advantage of our experience gained in the many years we have been successfully producing "paying" fronts. You will receive authoritative advice on any question pertaining to store fronts, whether it is of a structural or commercial nature. This information has been, and is being gathered from all over the country, from every city, town and hamlet in which we operate. It is the result of "doing" things and is practical— not theoretical. There is a Kawneer Branch near you, therefore we are in the best possible position to co-operate with you. Our three factories and nineteen offices enable us to assure you of prompt and efficient service no matter where you are located. Think over what the other fellow has been able to do, then ask yourself, "Why can't I do the same thing?" And your reply will be that there is no reason, excepting the decision. Decide to install a Kawneer Store Front now! Nine
