Wharton, E. (n.d.). Bunner Sisters. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Part 1. I In the days when New York?s traffic moved at the pace of the drooping horse?car, when society applauded Christine Nilsson at the Academy of Music and basked in the sunsets of the Hudson River School on the walls of the National Academy of Design, an inconspicuous shop with a single show?window was intimately and favourably known to the feminine population of the quarter bordering on Stuyvesant Square. It was a very small shop, in a shabby basement, in a side? street already doomed to decline; and from the miscellaneous display behind the window?pane, and the brevity of the sign surmounting it (merely ?Bunner Sisters? in blotchy gold on a black ground) it would have been difficult for the uninitiated to guess the precise nature of the business carried on within. But that was of little consequence, since its fame was so purely local that the customers on whom its existence depended were almost congenitally aware of the exact range of ?goods? to be found at Bunner Sisters'.
