Life in Georgetown in the early 20th Century is depicted in several areas.

Mr. Alwyn Goldstein’s department store, “Alwyn’s” was a popular place to shop for the latest trends in both fashion and homemaking. Merchandise from clothing to clocks to toys to boxing gloves could be had.

Phonographs and transistor radios (the latest!) were beside sewing supplies and beside these were elegant ladies’ ermine-like neck wraps and costume jewelry.

Anything for the home or personal use could be found at Alwyns.
