All photos by me.

The following photos are by Robby Cress at

The Brack Shops can be seen in the opening creditings of 'Possessed' (1947) starring Joan Crawford.
That's her about to boink her head on that big 'M'.

below: The same building today. The shops are now advertised as 'The Collection'.

Again...thanks to Robby Cress at
