Pic of the Day: Unearthed Department Store


Many of the abandoned places we cover in New York end up with busted-out windows, vines growing up the walls, and an impending condo development. Not the case with this Liverpudlian department store by the name of Lewis’s. The landmark store had boarded up the entire fifth floor after its mid-century heyday; shuttered and untouched for almost three decades, the living time capsule was recently unearthed and documented by photographer Stephen King. (Yes, his real name.) Peep the 1950s-era diner after the jump; the circa-1970s hair salon is pictured above.
