Shop window display

Shop window display

This display in a Self Help store was probably in Willis St, Wellington, around 1926. Self Help was a chain of grocery stores that began in Wellington and spread around the country. They were not self-service stores, but offered cheaper prices and no credit. Window displays were very important in the grocery trade for luring customers into the shop.
