"Lisicky generates memories here of goods beautifully displayed, the slight whooshing sound that the pneumatic tube made as it whisked a charge to the business office for approval and of stores gaily decorated not only for holidays but for various seasons."
"Michael J. Lisicky, a noted chronicler of East Coast department stores, had a local hit three years ago with his book, 'Hutzler's: Where Baltimore Shops'. Now he is taking us on another nostalgic shopping tour to several of the city's sorely missed stores. Let's go shopping!" --Baltimore Sun
"A follow-up to his wildly-popular Hutzler's: Where Baltimore Shops, this book widens the scope to look at other legendary retailers of yesteryear." --Baltimore Magazine
"Lisicky, through meticulous research and interviews, has culled together a stunning portrait of Baltimore in days gone by." --Maayan Jaffe, Baltimore Jewish Times
