The guidebook is in very good clean condition and serves as an engaging introduction to the city and to the storied emporium. Another of the store's innovative features is the "Wanamaker Wireless Telegraph Service."

(Rates are $2.00 for the first ten words and 12 cents for every extra word.) A photo illustrates the Wireless Service on the roof of the new Wanamaker Building in NYC.
