Reflections On Denholm’s

Mannequin In The Old Denholm’s Department store Building, Downtown Worcester.

I shot this last weekend while downtown on a photowalk. The reflections in the window really caught my eye. Denholm’s is a long gone department store that has been closed since 1973. The building is massive, and there are some small, subtle touches of its original greatness that still remain. Now mostly office space, it has remaining display windows that are still decorated by a gentleman, Christopher Sawyer, who I think works in the fashion industry, wrote a history of Denholm’s, and is the son of a woman who worked there. He has a wonderful blog at http://denholms.blogspot.com/  I saw him speak last year at the Worcester Public Library, where he kicked off his book. This has that vintage “Mad Men” feel. Which, of course, I LOVE! Oh, shot with the Polaroid 450. Don Draper heaven.
