" So our shop windows may be to us merely spots where merchants exhibit their merchandise, which they hope we will purchase, or they may be great illumed volumes of filled with illustrations of the processes of the industrial world and the world of art. In them are to be found whole chapters on anthropology, evolution, sociology, morals, ethics and poetry, illustrated true to life. Which shall they be to you and your children?"
