PURPOSE-BUILT SERVICE BUILDINGS AND PARKING GARAGES
FOR DEPARTMENT STORES, 1913-1960

Richard Longstreth, compiler


revised 12.1.09

SERVICE BUILDINGS

This compendium offers basic data on buildings constructed specifically for delivery, storage, and other service functions of the over 180 downtown-based department store companies in 59 cities studied for my book, The American Department Store Transformed, 1920-1960 (Yale University Press, 2010). The list includes discrete facilities attached or adjacent to the main store as well as ones on remote sites. The listings are chronologically arranged by date of opening, beginning with the earliest such facilities I have been able to document.


Numerous sources were used in compiling this material. Women’s Wear Daily and local newspapers were especially useful. Site visits were made in most cases, in which case I have included notation of whether the building still stands followed by the date of my last visit in parentheses as the last line in an entry.
Additions and corrections are welcome. Contact me at rwl@gwu.edu.

PARKING GARAGES
This compendium offers basic data on parking structures commissioned for patron use by the over 180 downtown-based department store companies in 59 cities studied for my book, The American Department Store Transformed, 1920-1960 (Yale University Press, 2010) The list does not include parking lots used for the same purpose, which appear to have been much more numerous. The listings are chronologically arranged by date of opening, beginning with the earliest such facilities I have been able to document.
Many sources were used in compiling this material. Women’s Wear Daily and local newspapers were especially useful. Site visits were made in most cases, in which case I have included notation of whether the building still stands followed by the date of my last visit in parentheses as the last line in an entry.
Additions and corrections are welcome. Contact me at rwl@gwu.edu.
