Filene's 1912 building, designed by
Daniel Burnham, showing the
Summer Street facade -
Jordan Marsh is on the right.
An architect's rendering highlights the beautiful
details which were a part of the Burnham design,
unlike the same firm's Gimbel and Marshall Field
& Company stores.
Before the construction of the brutalist
1973 "Floor One" addition, Filene's
Men's Store was located in a collection
of older stores along Washington Street.
The Jones, McDuffee and Stratton
building at the corner of Franklin
and Hawley Streets was a part of
the large Filene store.

1970's addition at Washington and
Franklin streets, as well as the
Jones, McDuffee and Stratton home
furnishings store that Filene's
eventually occupied.
