Stewart Bale collection online exhibition

This is part of a series of online exhibitions dedicated to the Stewart Bale photographic collection to highlight the breadth of its subject matter.

Throughout its existence the Stewart Bale company, amongst its many commissions, received orders to photograph new developments within the commercial field. It has therefore left an invaluable record of the changes and advances made in product development, its use and the display of merchandise within the retail sector. The marketing of goods through the shop window and their presentation within are shown, along with the advertising potential of the company van and street scenes amongst the department stores and business areas of Liverpool.
