Ruth McCulloch opened her first shop in Evanston in 1937, expanding to stores in Hubbard Woods and Northbrook. Specializing in American fashion designers, her stores were finely furnished and offered a “genteel” shopping experience. Her logo, with the old-fashioned image a young woman in a broad-rimmed hat, was present from the beginning and did not change through the years. It was used on all advertising and products.
