Shorpy Saturday – Give Him a Schick: 1941

By Jeffrey Buck

Shopping has changed tremendously over the years. Today’s transactions are increasing online and stores are nowhere close to being as elaborate and ornate as they once were. Detroit’s large departments stores have vanished and so has the majority of shopping that takes place downtown.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Give Him a Schick: 1941“:


July 1941. “Detroit, Michigan. Men’s toilet accessories department at the Crowley-Milner department store.” Inspecting the Schick Shaver. Large-format nitrate negative by Arthur Siegel for the Office of War Information.
