B. Altman & Co., New York City





B. Altman & Co.'s Neo-Renaissance palazzo anchored
the east end of  34th St., and Fifth Avenue, too.


The store's Fifth Ave. side was built in
1906, replacing an older facility in
lower Manhattan, as the store
moved northward.


In 1914, B. Altman & Co. reached its ultimate form with
the addition  of a 12-story building to the rear that
doubled the size of the store.


As a store, Altman's exuded the same
classic dignity as its building, here
seen from Madison Avenue


The charming eighth-floor Charleston Gardens restaurant
featured a real plantation facade and three other walls
of murals simulating an outdoor garden.
