This illustrated talk with historian Leslie Goddard traces the store’s history from its beginnings as a dry good store in 1852 to its reign as a world-class fashion and service trendsetter and tourist destination. Photographs, ads, postcards, menus, and memorabilia trace the store’s cherished traditions from chicken pot pie and the Walnut Room Christmas tree to the State Street store’s legendary window displays, and, of course, Frango Mints.
