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 Lose Daily More Than Enough Business To Pay for a New Kawneer Store Front QOW, if you appreciate the advantages you would derive from the installation of a Kawneer Store Front let us drive home two important points. You are paying every day for that new front in the business you are not getting—and after you have installed it, your competitor will be paying for your front with the business you'll be taking away from him. Show Us the Courtesy of Acknowledging Receipt of This Booklet As this booklet is rather expensive, we want to be sure you receive it and would ask that you fill out the enclosed card. Thank you! Realizing what a new front would mean to your store, and your business, make a rough sketch of your present front on the card, answering the questions listed. We'll then be in a position to show you (at no cost to you) the sort of front which will mean more business for you. You Don't Have to be a Draftsman to Draw a Rough Sketch of Your Present Front Just draw an elevation, looking at it from the street, and show the approximate location of the columns, steps, etc. Then measure from the sidewalk to the under edge of the top joist or top of the upper sash. Xow draw a plan—show the width of the columns and state the kind of material they are built of (stone, brick, wood or cement) and show distance of the door back from the front columns. Also show the distance from wall to wall. The sketch on the opposite page will help you to do this. You needn't draw your sketch to scale. These dimensions will enable us to make suggestions.
