At the time of this publication, more than 100,000 Kawneer solid-copper store fronts were in existence. The distinctive show windows and store fronts that their copper designs offered allowed a store to stand out in a class by itself. 30 styles were offered with either a center or corner entrance, and many existing businesses with Kawneer copper store fronts are beautifully photographed for inclusion in this book. It makes us crave a time machine to see these magnificent stores in person! Attractive and scarce; we've never seen this one before.
