Denholms Directory

When the Denholm building was being renovated in 1985 (into offices). I was able to go in and take whatever memorabilia I wanted.  There was not too much there, as the building had been stripped in preparation for the massive remodel that was taking place.  I was able to get the old directory from the third floor bank of elevators.  Below is how the store was layed out and the various departments within it.

  3. I wonder whatever became of the big, blue "Denholm" signs that stood over their Main Street and High Street entrances. I LOVED those signs. The lettering was so "Mad Men!" (Pegggy Olsen would have been a Denholn's shopper!)

  4. I have been looking for those signs for the past 20 years. Unfortunately I think they are in a dump somewhere. I did have the signs recreated and have them in my basement.

    Every time I watch Mad Men, I think of Denholms and my grandmother. The sixties was grand for the store and it was going through a lot of cosmetic upgrades, i.e. the escalators, boutique shopping, the first floor renovation etc...I would hope Joan would shop there as well!

  5. Question: On the directory I see references to "Chatham 1, Chatham 2, etc." - but I don't recall ever seeing an actual store entrance on Chatham Street.

    I remember the vacant lot on the corner of Main & Chatham Streets. Was the building that once stood there part of Denholm's? If so, are there any photos of the building?

    PS - I think you're right: Joan is a Denholm's gal!
