Mr Selfridge by Lindy Woodhead
This book lets us know more about the man behind the shop and includes pictures of him, interior shots of the store from the early 1920's ,and his family, home etc.
We get to learn of the loves in his life, be they women or material possessions as well as the ups and downs he had in business, and the risks he took.
This was a very enjoyable book esp for those who might be interested in the history of fashion and business. An excellent read.. I can't wait to visit the store in the future now that I know it's history.
I think Mr Selfridge would have been an incredibly interesting man to have met .
