Loveman’s Department Store artifcats on display at The Gardens

Southern Tales presents: “In Her Own Fashion,” a one-woman play performed by Dolores Hydock will be featured at The Gardens on Sunday, May 5. The play is the true story of Ninette Griffith, the one-time Fashion Coordinator for Loveman’s Department Stores. The original location, shown above, was at the corner of 19th Street and 3rd Avenue North in the space now filled by the McWane Science Center.

To honor the event, the Birmingham History Museum has loaned Archivist Jason Kirby a collection of hats, hat boxes, hat stands, credit cards, receipts and women’s apparel from the original store that will be on display this weekend at The Gardens.
