Lewis¹s Department Store is an iconic Liverpool landmark that has traded for over 150 years. Its history and character has been the inspiration for a series of newly commissioned photographs by Stephen King, capturing Lewis¹s fifth floor and the people that worked there. The fifth floor reopened in 1953 after being damaged during the Blitz. It housed three restaurants as well as a hair salon and was once a bustling hive of activity filled with staff and customers who recognised it as the epitome of leisure, style and shopping. It closed to the public in the 1980s. What remains is an evocative space complete with original period fixtures and fittings from the 50s, 60s and 1970s.
