Louis Bamberger, my Mother and me 1921-2021.

Bamberger’s was a division of Macy’s.

My archive of Bamberger’s World War II era photo’s from my Family. My Mother was a Hosiery buyer there for 17 years. My Aunt Jo Basso began in the Cashiers office and became Head of Payroll and worked there for 54 years. My other Aunt’s also worked there briefly during the Depression in the Bakery and the selling floor.
