early mannequins and window display

1904 mannequin illustration from a catalog
A good solid 1904 mannequin


mannequin photgraph from a 1913 catalog
In 1913 new mannequin appears in the
window, prettier and with a better wax head.


wax mannequin large photograph from 1914 advert
One year later, a new wax bust has replaced
the old mannequin AND the store owner's wife.


Feldman's humanized figures photgraph 1917 advertisement
By 1917, mannequins have replaced the store owner.
       
      
United States rubber company photograph
1917 customers don't bother to notice that stores are newly 
staffed by mannequins, and frankly they don't care.

1917 window display mannequins photograph
If this 1917 window production displays only two dresses, what must
they cost? It's questions like these that keep us outside looking in.
Now we're being asked to move along.

 Another 1934 window display for fabrics, with an odd
pose from the mannequin

1934 window display photograph
1934 mannequins: dark emotionless blocks of men.



kreml vacation hair advert photo
This very old advertisement appears to be a photographers
model with a studio backdop, wearing a bizarre mask and wig. 
And why call your product KREML?  That's the question
we pose, with hard plastic smiles from the store window display.
