Description
Display of a dining room set at Lion & Sons furniture store. The display includes a table and chairs made of dark wood and one chair in a lighter color. The table is set. A vacuum cleaner stands in the center. A sign on the floor reads "L. Lion & Sons Co."
"Founded in 1856 by Lazard Lion, the company moved to this new building at the corner of Second and San Fernando Streets in 1908. Though L. Lion went out of business in 1967, the structure still remains, with the first floor occupied by the Gordon Biersch Brew Pub." From: Bob Johnson. "San Jose," Arcadia Publishing. p. 20.
