Bloomingdale’s originally opened in 1861 when the Bloomingdale brothers began by selling hoop skirts on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Then in 1872, the two opened their first store at 938 Third Avenue in New York City, and moved in 1886 to their location on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue.

Here is their entire Summer 1890 catalog so you can see what people wanted to buy back in those early days!
