Book about the Fifth Avenue store Bergdorf-Goodman.
Here is a great vintage book about the history of the Fifth Avenue department store, Bergdorf-Goodman. Published in 1956 it takes the reader through the beginnings and rise of what would become and still is the most fashionable and luxurious of all New York Stores, if not the world!
