Bonwit Teller window display featuring their back to school children's collection. The mannequins are made out of cardboard tubing, and the mannequins are wearing plaid and plain dresses. The glass of the window has school related drawings, such as a violin or math problems, in order to go with their back to school theme. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Teens, children! Go back to school from Bonwit's! Come to our Young Seventh Floor."
