Wanamaker’s department store is fondly remembered for the massive bronze eagle in the Grand Court, concerts from the world’s largest pipe organ, and its spectacular Christmas festivities. In a lecture given on May 4, 2011, at HSP, Philadelphia native and author Michael J. Lisicky takes a nostalgic journey through the history of the store, from its beginnings as a haberdashery to the final poignant closing of its doors.
