Petula Clark Said It Best: “Downtown – Everything’s Waiting For You” – Reflections on Isenberg, Part I
Downtown America has been interesting, thus far. First of all, having already looked at the shift from the “downtown” environment to shopping malls several decades later, it was interesting to look at the evolution of downtown already knowing the reasons for the ultimate declination and shift to suburbia. The section of the pictorial beautification (where downtown areas cleaned up their visual presentation for post postcards and publications) was interesting. This trend demonstrated that not only is it important to advertise the merchandise when attempting to attract and establish a clientele – it’s also important to “advertise”, or otherwise promote the value of the space. I’m really looking forward to the second half of this book.
