Zoom into the detail of this photograph

A display of the 'Morley' brand of stockings in the window of a former Liverpool department store in Church Street. Henderson and Sons was destroyed by fire in 1960 and after rebuilding continued to trade under this name until 1975.

The window has been dressed not just to exhibit goods that can be purchased within but to entice people to go into the shop.

This photograph was commissioned by Henderson and Son.
