In the 1950s, just about every major city had a landmark department store. In Connecticut, it was G. Fox & Co in Hartford!
This presentation will bring you back in time to Fox’s heyday as we go from floor to floor and recall departments ranging from accessories on the “street” floor, to designer dresses on 6, and ending at Toyland on 11. You’ll also learn about Beatrice Fox Auerbach, the remarkable woman who made every visit to Fox’s so enjoyable and set the standard for customer service. We promise to stir pleasant memories of date nut bread in the Connecticut Room, back-to-school shopping, and the wonderful Christmas season at G. Fox & Co.!
A 45-minute presentation by Joe Waxman, CHS Member & Volunteer, will be followed by Exhibit Tours of Beatrice Fox Auerbach: The Woman, Her World & Her Wardrobe at 12:00 pm. Refreshments will be provided.
FREE for CHS members, $8 for non-members.
