My beautiful mother celebrating Christmas at Crowley’s Department Store in Detroit (1957). She worked there as a secretary up until she married my father in October of 1958. She met my Dad in the toy department at Crowley’s (yep, sounds like it’s right out of a movie, right?) He worked there as well; and was eitherĀ in the toy department shopping for his two daughters from his first marriage or stocking merchandise. Nonetheless, romance was born in the toy department at Crowley’s Department Store.
