EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative black and white portrait captures the wise and contemplative gaze of John Lewis (1836-1928), the illustrious founder of the iconic John Lewis department store on Oxford Street in London. With a distinguished air and a thick beard that frames his face, John Lewis exudes the aura of a seasoned businessman and a man of history. Born in Leeds, England, John Lewis began his career as a draper's apprentice at the tender age of 14. He later moved to London to expand his horizons and opened his first shop in 1864, selling textiles and haberdashery. Over the next several decades, John Lewis transformed his small business into a retail empire, expanding his offerings to include a wide range of household goods, furniture, and clothing. The store on Oxford Street, which opened in 1928, was a testament to John Lewis's vision and entrepreneurial spirit. It was one of the first department stores in London to offer a self-service model, allowing customers to browse and select their own items, a revolutionary concept at the time. John Lewis's commitment to providing excellent customer service and high-quality merchandise quickly made it a favorite among Londoners and tourists alike. This photograph, taken in the later years of John Lewis's life, captures the legacy of a man who revolutionized the retail industry and left an indelible mark on the history of shopping in London. With his keen business acumen and unwavering dedication to his customers, John Lewis paved the way for the modern department store and continues to be an inspiration to retailers and entrepreneurs around the world.
