This is an original silver gelatin print photo of the interior of a store that sold all sorts of fabric, ribbon, lace and other notions.  I believe that the store was located in Quebec as this came from a Montreal area estate and everything was of local origin.  In the background there is a sign for McCall Patterns.  I can see lace runners, shawls, hosiery/underwear, a dress on a mannequin, scarves, cords and tassels, ribbon and a lot of boxes.  The sales staff is standing about, and from their manner of dress, I would estimate that the photo dates to the 1910s.  The matte measures 7 1/4” by 9 1/8” while the print measures 4 3/4” by 6 5/8”.  It is in pristine condition.        

There are no identifying clues as to photographer or the name of the store, but this is a very nice period image of the interior of a store.
