    Today it was time to assess which of the original packaging kept in storage should stay & what could go. (1) Unmarked boxes without any (interesting) decoration were discarded whereas those with labels or adresses of the customers whose purchases are in our museum’s collection were given a barcode label. Most of these boxes have a story to tell...
    On May 6, 1904 H.W. Schouten (2) proudly announced the opening of his shoeshop on Utrechtsestraat corner Herengracht in Amsterdam. The building was designed by the architect L.G. Mohrmann & had all the latest modcons. This was matched by the large variety & high quality of the shoes on offer. The venture prospered & by 1910 Schouten had acquired the adjacent property & requested the architect J.P. Tholens to design this new & larger shop. Apparantly Tholens also did a refurbishement in 1917 as some of these drawings (3,4) are kept in the Amsterdam Municipal Archives. The inside was to have beautiful oak panelling also visible on the outside & even the stools on which customers would place their foot to try a shoe were designed accordingly... In 1931 Schouten sold his shop but the building remains to this day & the ground floor is still used as a shop. #storage #assessment #packaging #boxes #shoebox #utrechtsestraat #herengracht #amsterdam #shoeshop #architecture #panelling #oak #stadsarchiefamsterdam #tholens #shoefitting #accessioning #fashioncurator #iamrijksmuseum #rijksmuseum #modemuze
