Department Stores…

Des Moines IA – Brandeis Department Store

Department stores are the epitome of a capitalist society. They started springing up in the early 1900s and soon became an important “go to” place in every large American city and even in many European cities. If you want to see a list of now defunct department stores click here.  I guess Walmart SuperStores are the equivalent in today’s world.  But I kind of think even these will soon be a thing of the past replaced by the Amazons of today.

Progress is also a necessary ingredient in capitalists societies…
